Nossa Senhora dos Remedios Church, Arraial do Cabo

(400+ reviews on the web)
Church
When you see how well preserved Nossa Senhora dos Remedios Church is, you will be amazed to learn that not only is it over 500 years old, but also the oldest church in Brazil. Built in the early 1500s, it is thought to be here that Portuguese colonialists held their first indoor Mass. Inside, you will find little decoration; a few statues and paintings surround the simple altar, which, brought over from Portugal, bears an image of Our Lady of Remedies, Arraial do Cabo’s patron saint.
