  • Blessed place, place of faith, peace, feel very good energy when I'm there. Wonderful sanctuary, Rico in detail. Have a store we can buy some souvenirs and at the time of the mass the Priest blesses or even bring something from home.

  • I went to the Agi with my husband. It was an old desire to visit the sanctuary. I was delighted with the world that is! That structure. The mass and we know the shops, the candles, the Pilgrim Centre, which also several souvenir shops fonta, food court, pharmacy. It was a very fruitful and exciting tour, since we are devotees of Our Lady of Aparecida. I intend to come back soon with my parents ...

  • Place blessed by God, where he finds peace, answer to so many questions, in the silence of prayer, where you actually sit in the Motherhouse. Recollections of graces and miracles in rooms designed to keep and exhibit objects left by devotees of Our Lady of Aparecida in panels it is possible to make a journey in the history of the appearance of the image. Each place of sanctuary is more beautiful than the other. There's plenty of room, many rides, kiosks to buy water, souvenirs, souvenirs, candles of all sizes and varied formats, whereas, many make promises to light candles in the living room, inside the sanctuary, Great for the whole family. There are also tours that are paid, that are very worthwhile. The real image is exposed for visitation and is a unique moment, that's a little than can be done in the sanctuary.

  • 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 !
  • 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.
  • Great place of worship and visiting even if you are not catholic.
  • Beautiful place. This is the most Catholic place
