    Capela de Sto Benedito built by slaves in 1761 in honor to its Patron Saint, is located in the historical part of the city. In front of it there is a small square where black slaves after the religious ceremonies gathered to practice capoeira and jongo (cultural manifestation African in the Brazil of music and dance which influenced so unchallenged in the popular culture of the country. Origin in the Bantu tribes of Congo, the music is produced by some instruments, three drums established and initially by the urucungo which is a similar to the current birimbau musical bow). This was the only church where they could attend since they could not do it in the churches of the white men. It is a small and very simple church with a Bell Tower. It is one of fists tour of the city by its history primarily but unfortunately is closed to the public at the moment

    Located in the central square of the historic passage, in Cabo Frio, São Benedito's Church is not open for visitation, only possible to enjoy it on the outside, you will see your structure, which is beautiful!

    A remnant of the early city of Cabo Frio. Situated in the Passage in front of the square of the same name. Here began the formation of Cabo Frio.

    Historical site on the first nucleus of the village of Cabo Frio. Close to excellent restaurants! On the square in front, on the last Sunday of the month there's live music!

    The Chapel is beautiful, the perfect place for an intimate wedding, with few people, but unfortunately are not performed weddings at the site 😭
