Matriz Church, Angra Dos Reis

(4/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Built over 100 years ago, Matriz Church is a secular church with baroque details and exuberant polychrome altars. From the outside, the church looks very simple, but the interior boasts brilliant gold accents and anonymous sacred images. Be sure to ask someone to tell you the story about the bone, which looks like the image of Our Lady of Conception, who is the patroness of the city. This church is worth a visit for the religious and non-religious alike, because of its architecture and history. Plan to see Matriz Church and other attractions that appeal to you using our Angra Dos Reis trip builder.

  • Is the most famous and traditional church of the city of Angra dos Reis and is located in the city centre. Simple and ancient architecture. It's not very good.

  • The Church is a nice option for those who like culture and downtown in the center of Angra. And, from the Centre of Angra, you can stroll to the Islands.

  • Simple Church, but beautiful and well kept inside, easy access, we left the car in the parking lot and walk to the sights!
