Igreja de São Pelegrino, Caxias Do Sul

4.8
#1 of 36 in Things to do in 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.  Arrange to visit Igreja de São Pelegrino and other attractions in Caxias Do Sul using our Caxias Do Sul vacation route planner.

    Aldo Locatelli's paintings are wonderful! The stained glass Windows are also worth highlighting. ' And the most beautiful tourist spot of Caxias.

    We were visiting and we were very impressed with the quality of murals done by painter Aldo Locatelli on the roof of the Church. TB has on the sides all the via crucis and the bronze doors with relief are differentiators. Actually, I just saw similar things in European Churches.

    The Church of Saint Pellegrino is the paintings of the stations of the cross made by Italian artist Aldo Daniele Locatelli. Worth the visit.

    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.
