Nossa Senhora dos Remedios Church, Arraial do Cabo

(4.2/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The Church is near the praia dos anjos, port where the boat tours, small and well preserved good for those who enjoy history and a beautiful church typical of the region. Worth going to check it out.

  • Igreja muito charmosa!
  • Precisava de um cinegripe, mas eles vieram rezando....
  • Acredita-se que a 1° missa celebrada em um local fechado/coberto, no Brasil, foi nesta igreja Nossa Senhora dos Remédios, Arraial do Cabo.
  • Santa Missa na Terça-feira e Quarta-feira às 19h Santa Missa aos Domingos às 07:30h Nossa Senhora dos Remédios, rogai por nós!
  • Minha Igreja de batismo.
