    The shrine is beautiful! Worth a visit! Spirituality is magnificent. The structure is very good. Several bathrooms and clean. Multiple locations for meals or snacks. The city is small and with many hotels, however the wait for accommodations that are in accordance with the prices charged.

    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.
