Paróquia Nossa Senhora da Assunção - Igreja São Pedro, Cabo Frio

4.8
#1 of 9 in Historic Sites in Cabo Frio
Built in the 17th century, Paróquia Nossa Senhora da Assunção - Igreja São Pedro is one of Cabo Frio’s oldest buildings, and as an important part of the city’s history, you will find it extremely well maintained. Inside, you will see the beautiful, baroque-style gilded altar, the huge marble font--one of only five in Brazil--, and numerous paintings, four of which were discovered during some restoration work in the 1960s. As the church is very small, the larger Igreja Matriz Auxiliar was built around the corner, to support the ever-growing congregation. However, Mass is still held at Paróquia Nossa Senhora da Assunção - Igreja São Pedro, with attendees regularly spilling out of the door.
