  • Q Church of our Lady of the Rosary and Saint Benedict, is a part of the history of Cuiabá, and dispenses adjectives.

  • This church talks a lot about the history of Cuiabá. Richly adorned and decorated with a beautiful altar typical of the times of the colony. Parish staff very friendly and receptive. Worth the visit.

  • Nossa Senhora Rosário and São Benedito Chapel, historical buildings and that tell the story of a people and their traditions over the years. Built more than 200 years, represents a period of great mineral production. Keep in present day mass every Tuesdays from the 5:00 of traditional morning mass and the end is served traditional tea with cake.

Where to stay in Cuiaba

As a busy state capital and a major hub of commerce, Cuiaba provides a good selection of mostly mid-range hotels catering to budget visitors. Truly luxurious hotels are a rarity here, but you can choose from many decent establishments offering clean, bright rooms. Look for accommodations near downtown to stay close to the best shopping, dining, and entertainment options.
