Igreja de São Pelegrino, Caxias Do Sul

(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.

  • The Church is beautiful! Very interesting to have access to the inside, where you can admire the beautiful paintings on the ceiling. We had the support of a guide, which made us a brece explanation of cafa scene painted on the ceiling. In addition, there is a replica of the Pieta, obta unmissable. Very beautiful.

  • The place is so beautiful that every time I get a chance swing by there! All works of art of the Church are memorable! Right stop of all tour buses visiting Caxias, is an attraction that pleases all ages, as well as from inside, the doors are worth a careful observation and the flower clock in the external courtyard is always well maintained. Attention with small children on the stairs and ease in access by the side gate for wheelchair users and the elderly. With private car parking can be a problem because the vacancies on the street during business hours may be crowded, but in the bottom of the land has a secured parking with direct access to the property via a ladder!! Always stop there!

  • A gem of a church, richly decorated with works of Aldo Locatelli, including a Pieta replica! Worth admiring her calmly, if surprising at every step
