Igreja de São Pelegrino, Caxias Do Sul

(4.8/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
Aldo Locatelli is responsible for the vivid frescoes that cover Igreja de São Pelegrino's walls and ceilings. Locatelli's paintings are what give the church its reputation as the most beautiful in the city. Along with the murals, you’ll also see a pair of bronze doors designed by Augusto Murer that are spectacular in their own right. They depict the story of the Italian immigration to Brazil sculpted in metal. Another homage to Italy is the replica Pieta on display.  Arrange to visit Igreja de São Pelegrino and other attractions in Caxias Do Sul using our Caxias Do Sul vacation route planner.

  • This church has a replica of Michelangelo's Pieta performed by Mahavir Redig de Campos, Director of the "Musei Monumenti and Gallerie Pontificie" of the Vatican and the ceiling and altar were painted by Aldo Locatelli, who inspired in the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican.

  • A work of art, the Church Sao Pelegrino is one of the most beautiful I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. In the Church is the Pieta, a gift from Pope Paul VI, the bronze doors of the Vatican and the paintings which decorate the Church, made by the painter Aldo Locatelli. The only downside is finding place to park.
