Church Tourist Spot
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.

  • 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.
