Catedral de Pedra, Canela

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.

  • The Church is the most beautiful vision of the trip! The best! I just want to be there all life ... beautiful!

  • Can be seen from afar. This is a beautiful and impressive church, located in the heart of Cinnamon. It is possible to stop on the street (paying if Rotary parking) in the surroundings of the Cathedral. Recommend a visit. They say that in December there's spectacle of lights and Santa rappelling at the site. As we went in November I have no information.

  • Super beautiful place to visit. It is beautiful in the night and the day. Very close to fairytale city Gramado.
  • Quite a fast place to see, and it is a landmark at Canela, so hard to miss. I like the architecture of the place. Good photo place.
  • Very pretty on the outside. Ugly and very dull on the inside. Kinda like someone you know... It's barely ok. Not all that you read on their ads. You can drive by it, but I wouldn't waste time going in.
  • A beautiful landmark worth seeing. There was a lot of traffic around it though.
  • Beautiful place.
