Nossa Senhora da Conceicao Metropolitan Cathedral, Campinas

(4.6/5 based on 480+ 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.
