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

4.6
#1 of 8 in Historic Sites in Cabo Frio
Architectural Building Church
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.

Its construction began in 1615 during the founding of the city of Santa Helena (old name of Cabo Frio) and obeys the architectural lines of the religious buildings of the Jesuits at the time. An image of that santa was asked to Portugal for its opening at the beginning of the 17TH century but which came was the Virgin of Asunción by which the Church is called that way. The entrance of single door with three windows at the height of the choir and a triangular pediment. To the left of the façade there is a unique tower with belfry. Inside there is a single nave with a side corridor. It was vacant from 1872 when the Franciscan monastery that worked there was defused. They spent many years of neglect until 1960 it was restored with side altars and altar in Baroque style.
