Catedral de Pedra, Canela
(4.7/5 based on 8,000+ reviews on the web)
Extremely photogenic Catedral de Pedra is one of Brazil’s finest examples of the English Gothic architectural style. This Cathedral of Stone, as its name literally translates from the Portuguese, features a tower rising 65 m (213 ft) into the air, and includes a carillon of 12 bronze bells imported all the way from Italy. The interior is decorated with painted canvases created by the gaucho artist Marciano Schmitz, who used three panels to depict the sacred "Apparition of Our Lady." Also included are several paintings by Uruguayan artist Pablo Herrera, noted for using wood and clay in his works. Try to time your visit for the evening hours, when the building becomes the centerpiece of a colorful light show. With our international travel planner, Canela attractions like Catedral de Pedra can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Outside the Cathedral is beautiful, an impressive construction. Inside unflattering to his exuberance.
