  • The shrine of Aparecida has all the structure, romeiro is well signposted, clean bathrooms, drinking water, several mass schedules. The signaling is complete. Spectacular. We came back renewed.

  • Of course, everyone has an opinion, but I don't understand why some people gave "horrible" to the Basilica. There is not a sad place, but a place of worship, faith and prayer! If you know you won't like, it's not going to pass a bad impression to others. I love there and go every year. Only on special dates fill up too much! If you don't like lines and riots, not go on those dates. Otherwise, I recommend DEMAAAIS!

  • Wonderful!! My experience today was fantastic. May God bless all the people that are reading this comment.!! 👏👏
  • This is a peace place, where all people came to pray to Our Lady of Aparecida from Brazil. The church is big and very beautiful. The national day of Aparecida is 12 October.
  • Where: Basilica of the National Shrine of Our Lady of Aparecida What: A basilica How was it: It was great, really nice structure inside and out. Sadly the weather wasn't the greatest when we visited, but we still found the beauty in this place. They have a small market where you can buy some souvenirs and places to eat. It's worth going to see the old and the new basilica. Grade: Eli = 5, Serge = 5 Recommend: Definitely !
  • Beautiful place to visit and feel the energy of the most popular religion in Brazil. Even for non-religious people, the visit is worth it
  • A lovely place to pray and sightseeing, offers a great structure for visitors with food court, many clean bathrooms and water fountains. The celebrations and the place's history are heartwarming. A guaranteed great experience.
