Igreja de São Pelegrino, Caxias Do Sul

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.  Make Igreja de São Pelegrino a centerpiece of your Caxias Do Sul vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Caxias Do Sul trip maker app .

  • Beautiful and extremely good. Great place for reflection. It is worth visiting to observe the existing artwork on the site.

  • It's always good to stop and thank God for everything in our lives, like entering churches that don't know even being a spiritualist, for the faith that moves me is the same as that of Christ comforter. Sacred art beautiful, wonderful paintings. Worth knowing.

  • The Church is beautiful, his paintings of the stations of the cross are worth. Even if it isn't very religious, the Church is worth a visit

  • Very traditional place in Caxias do Sul. Every tourist has to come here !
  • Beautiful church
  • Church too beautiful, it's worth a visit even if it's not Catholic. Internal paintings beautiful and well lit at night. But care should be taken to the area of the Church, and the street is intensely violent and has very round.

  • A place not to be missed. If you go the Serra Gaúcha. Don't miss this church with paintings by Aldo Locatelli. A beautiful place. Full of art and peace. Leave a time reserved for power hook up. Take lots of pictures. Enjoy what our country is beautiful.

  • Beautiful place!!! I doubt anyone visiting and not to be charmed by the structure found. The inner part of the Church is simply fantastic! Take a good camara fotografica and take advantage of the religious articles store, which is quite complete.
