With a Neoclassical façade, the building features a Baroque-style interior, with notable wooden furnishings, Austrian pews, silver chandeliers, crucifixes, and hand-carved alters.

  • Beautiful baroque-style Cathedral. Great place to meditate. Big, in the heart of the city of Campinas. But there's no parking on the street. Beware of robbery.

  • As almost all major cities, the Central region is well degraded and with risks. After all, it's tricky to Park downtown, and, depending on the time, dangerous.

  • When visiting Campinas, even if in passing, do not forget to meet or even visit this temple mui beautiful, incredible architecture, by the standards of the time it was built and is maintained by the Government and local businesses. Is always under construction.
