  • A church beautiful inside, with rich details, built for the slave Chica da Silva, its particularity is that the Bell Tower is in the back of the Church. Worth the visit.

  • Best of the churches of Diamantina and mandatory stop point to any visitor to the region. Located next to the forum, lacks internal visit, since the outside is quite simple. The interior has the most beautiful ship liner among the churches in the region, a masterpiece about Elias. There is a small Museum of sacred art with frescos and exquisite sculptures of local artists from the colonial period, most of them unknown. The tower is only located on the back of the Church, at the behest of Chica da Silva. They say the legends of the town it was a whim, since Chica didn't want to be disturbed by the bells of the Bell, but the most accepted theory is that it was a way to circumvent the law that forbade blacks and mestizos crossing the towers to enter in the churches. With the Tower in the background, nobody needed to cross it to attend masses, so blacks started hanging around the interior of the temple. Great!
