    Just a blessed place, a lot of tradition and faith of the community of Mato Grosso. The feast of Saint Benedict is beautiful.

    According to the stories of the ancient people, the Church was Blessed for the Christian slaves, while the other was white Christians. They said also that under the Church of Saint Benedict, there was a large tunnel for gold extraction, who helped the padres to give support to Blacks at the time. Until today there is doubt the existence of this tunnel, since the region was very rich in gold. I was sitting in the seats wondering faith of the slaves and the beauty of the place. A simplicity watered the faith.
