Matriz Church, Angra Dos Reis

3.9
#2 of 8 in Historic Sites in Angra Dos Reis
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.

  • Always step over there, the Church is very pretty and preserved, however there is a cemetery right behind that does not bring many good memories, but the place is nice

  • The Church is the oldest in the city and was completed in the mid-18TH century, after years of construction. Is one of the most visited and traditional Angra and is right in the heart of the city with a huge patio that gets crowded during the traditional celebrations in the city.
