Belem Metropolitan Cathedral, Belem

4.7
#3 of 7 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.

    Who looks this church just outside, might not be interested in take a break and get to know her inside. With a facade without many attractive, fully painted white, she ends up passing unnoticed in the square where the Strong are also the Nativity scene and the House of Eleven Windows. When you enter the church you stand amazed at the beauty of the interior. Painted panels, wonderful ceiling, the altar, the huge organ. Worth knowing and if possible, attend mass in this church. A tour not to be missed. I personally think this church so much prettier than the Basilica of Nazareth.

    We went to Bethlehem to do a cultural tour and religious, however for our unhappiness the Cathedral was completely closed for renovation.

    It is opposite the Fort of the crib and beside the Museum House of Eleven Windows. The guide is quite clear and it relies on the local story details.

    Looking at the exterior simplicity is hard to imagine the wonder of your interior. Is one of the most beautiful churches of Pará and, perhaps, of Brazil. Along with the crib, the Museum House of Eleven Windows and the Church of St. Alexander-Museum of sacred art is part of the historical and religious complex Happy Lusitania.
