Catedral Sao Paulo Apostolo - Igreja Matriz, Blumenau

4.6
#1 of 8 in Historic Sites in Blumenau
Catedral Sao Paulo Apostolo - Igreja Matriz is very different from traditional churches, exhibiting more modern architecture. Opened in 1958 and designed by Gottfried Boehm, the church has a tower 45 meters (148 feet) high and three electronic bells. It was built with stones of red granite and stained glass windows that produce a brilliant light and colors. At the entrance, you will be greeted by a cedar carving depicting Our Lady, Christ Crucified, San Jose, and the Paschal Lamb. Symbolically, they represent family, forgiveness, community, and sacrifice. Once inside, two rows of white pillars on either side welcome you to rest and reflect.

  • It has a big parking lot, even if you can't be a fan of God, can park there. However, being a fan or not, you're going to have to pay for parking in the same way. Has an incredible architecture, has become more a postcard of the city. There is a lake with fish, very nice.

  • Great location everything very clean and organized, a quiet place even though in downtown Blumenau. The masses are not monotonous and the Priest present at that moment, has the gift of the gab. Modern architecture with beautiful stained glass Windows. Ample parking.
