Catedral de Pedra, Canela

4.7
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.

  • We went to visit the Cathedral and we were delighted! All in stone, in the middle of a gramadão. Right in front of the Cathedral there is a sign "I love Cinnamon", very cool to take pictures! We love! Imagine a wedding in this Cathedral that romantic. = D

  • 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.
  • A beautiful landmark worth seeing. There was a lot of traffic around it though.
  • 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.
  • The style of the catedral is kinda unique, if you like this sort of architecture I recommend you take a look.
  • Lovely place
