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.

  • The beautiful Church in the style of European cathedrals. The main altar is very beautiful, and side altars of wide notability.

  • Bella epoc'
  • Top
  • Linda!!!
  • 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.
