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.

  • Located in angra do reis, there is not much to go on the coast. The Church is cute and sensilla by outside and picturesque in its interior, old as the village. Is the more ancient of Angra. It opened its doors in 1750, over a hundred years after the beginning of the works. a colonial building with Baroque and rococo styles. Perhaps a simpler churches already visited, above all because it is an array. There are no big ornamentaes, basically formed by two small windows and a door facade and Tower. Its interior also follows the same style, with a single nave with few props, altar has ornamental beautiful and colorful and two side altars. Where is located the famous image of our Lady of the conception, that was donated by the Portuguese and surrounded of countless stories. Is very small, simple and cosy. It is a square surrounded by shops. It has several benches for rest and a beautiful image of the sacred heart of Jesus. This in an environment of waters blue, green, colorful fish, starfish Islands with Palm trees and spectacular vegetation.

  • very cool to see the architecture and the works of art in statues and of course, the story of sailors who passed that way. It's worth it!
