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

4.6
#1 of 8 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.

  • A milestone in the history of Brazil. As was the practice of the Portuguese, to found a city politically and administratively, also established the local church. In 2015, were completed 400 years of presence of the Catholic Church in Cabo Frio.

  • More than thirty years that I'm regularly to Cabo Frio and like to pray and spend a few minutes inside this church that leads us to meditation. To admire your interior of many centuries with its thick walls and imperfect outline of your imagine the people over there have passed. It is a place that everyone who visits Cabo Frio should visit.
