  • Very beautiful outside and inside, it is worth registering in photos. For anyone who's religious is a good place for prayers and prayers. Stay in close to the municipal park of BH (to walk).

  • Located in the heart of BH, was in the early days of icon then the State capital, references to all the faithful at the time, sought to place the celebration of weddings and baptisms. This is a temple in formal standards of the Catholic churches in Brazil, as much as to your size, ability to receive the faithful for their frescoes, altars and composition distribution images of internal spaces and their hosting visitation regulars. Lost a little of your splendour from the years 1960 due to the growth of the city and lately due to physical reforms there carried out comes the reacquiring taste and interest of the community for weddings becoming pleasant place and secure, remaining however always the local condition very frequented during his religious cults.
