#3 of 13 in Historic Sites in Belem
The two bell towers imported from Europe and the brilliant white exterior of Belem Metropolitan Cathedral are just a prelude to an ornate interior with polished marble floors, stained glass, and geometric patterns on the walls. It also features paintings of saints in golden frames, 18th century screens, ten altars, and 28 bronze chandeliers. A French organ of 19th century is a true treasure of the history of Belem.

  • The Cathedral is very beautiful, but the main highlight is the customer service and the willingness to follow and provide information of the receiving team. Are offered souvenirs for purchase in own entry, being the highlight for perfume.

  • Metropolitan Cathedral of Baker: With a neoclassical style associated with oriental art, really and very rich architecture. With your stately organ at the back of the Church, as well as the paintings on the ceilings and the details of lectern made of iron that distance mimics wood, is worth to be visited. Great Italian paintings and as well as their story worth being heard by guides that do this for free and don't charge admission. Even for those who don't like religious architecture should not miss it.

  • Fully restored, it is worth knowing, attend a mass and if you're lucky to watch one of the many musical performances that use their organ Centennial.

  • Linda!!!
  • It's not just a church, but also a history point of our dear Bethlehem. I was very well received and learned a little about the history of this wonderful place thanks to the attendants who told me a little of the history of the Cathedral that started as a simple Chapel. And when I say wonderful not to say only about your history, but also of all the internal and external environment of the Church, simply charming. As a Catholic I advise you to visit this section of our city.
