  • Sculptures made by Aleijadinho, in chapels located in the courtyard of the Church. Visitation order must be from the bottom up, from right to left, until you reach the chapel of the resurrection (before arriving at Church). Note that in Baroque art, the well has softer facial features while ill have faces well.

  • Go walking and contemplating each Chapel, is a visit to the past of art in Brazil, and to the most representative in the history of the agony of Jesus Christ, the view, through the cracks of Windows, brings us to the exact moment of the scene depicted. Worth the visit and many beautiful photos of the place.

  • Obviously that's important, it's very beautiful, stunning etc. I just wanted to highlight two things: 1. The side Windows that some of the chapels have. Look for them. Note that they offer a new look at the works. Newspaper clippings detail the scenes. Is a feature of editing: the chapels saw almost a movie. 2. Notice the space in which the chapels are established: it is a journey. In the right order, is a Hill climb that requires the subject a little effort to climb towards the Church. The work is not just the set of sculptures. The installation is also part.
