Catedral Sao Paulo Apostolo - Igreja Matriz, Blumenau

(4.6/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The Blumenau Cathedral is in the city center, on top of a small hill and you already paid a small penance to get her to climb the long stairs. The Church from the inside is very beautiful and wide, had a beautiful Nativity scene at Christmas. You can hear the priest of any seat during mass due to efficient sound system. The nave of the Church goes back to your modern architecture.

  • The Cathedral draws attention mainly for your Tower, especially well positioned to the top of the 15TH Street, a beautiful postcard of Blumenau.

  • Several times for mass, ample space, on-site parking. The only downside was the priest who celebrated the mass. I'd rather criticize than teach.
