  • IGREJA MATRIZ SAGRADO CORAÇÃO DE JESUS Data de construção: de 1891 a 1897; reformas em 1899 e outra entre 1925 e 1928 Alexandre Pellegrini foi o primeiro padre de Antônio Prado, em 1888, rezou a primeira missa no Barracão dos Imigrantes, onde proferiu “Homens livres do orbe! Eis aqui a terra de promissão. Só com os braços conquistareis o pão e a liberdade”. Por iniciativa do Padre Pellegrini a igreja matriz tem até hoje como padroeiro o Sagrado Coração de Jesus. Construída em alvenaria, a igreja demorou seis anos para ficar pronta. Em 1899, sob o ordenamento do Padre Fasulo, a igreja sofreu sua primeira reforma e embelezamento. Em 1911, chegaram, puxados por carretas, os três sinos da igreja: o maior, pesa 890 quilos e o menor, 464 quilos. Em 1912 foi erguido ao lado esquerdo da igreja, o campanário de madeira para abrigar os novos sinos. Entre os anos de 1925 e 1928 ocorreu a segunda reforma da igreja, a mesma ganhou novos vitrais que culminou na construção das novas escadarias para o acesso a igreja. Já na década de 50, o artista italiano Emilio Benvenutto Zanon foi contratado para fazer as pinturas internas da igreja.
