Nossa Senhora da Conceicao Metropolitan Cathedral, Campinas
(4.5/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
Made entirely of compressed clay, Nossa Senhora da Conceicao Metropolitan Cathedral is considered one of seven wonders of Campinas. Finished in 1883 by local architect Ramos de Azevedo, this church took nearly 70 years to be completed. With a Neoclassical façade, the building features a Baroque-style interior, with notable wooden furnishings, Austrian pews, silver chandeliers, crucifixes, and hand-carved alters. The internal decorations are made from special dark jacaranda wood, native to this area. The four bells in the main tower are a century old. Step in on a hot day for a quick visit, or time your city tour to arrive for Mass.

  • This Cathedral is beautiful on the inside, all decorated with carved wood and very well preserved. It is located in the Center very close to the promenade of shops.

  • All visitor worth his salt needs to meet our Metropolitan Cathedral of the patron saint of Campinas, n. Sra. da Conceição. In addition to the spiritual part (for Catholics), also offers an excellent show of Baroque religious architecture of the 18 century. In its interior you can check altars and images in hardwood, all restored recently.

  • Still undergoing restoration but the Cathedral is very beautiful, the masses are always crowded. I'm not Catholic anymore but take my mother ate it every time she comes to Campinas. A church with richness in details and amazing architecture.
