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.

  • Well preserved and emanates positive vibes. When I lived in Blumenau always did go the masses on Sundays morning.

  • Is a Catholic Church with very contemporary architecture reminiscent of the works of Neymeier. Has own parking and manicured gardens. Access for people with mobility disabilities.
