  • The current Temple of the Church of Pilar has almost 300 years, since it was erected in 1720, however the parish history goes much further, being one of the oldest in Rio de Janeiro, the construction of the chapel was held in 1612. The Church of the pillar is a jewel in the history of Brazil Colony, because the construction of the chapel of 1720 is linked to soaring population of in the region after the creation of the new path that connected the port of Rio de Janeiro the region of mines across the river Iguazu , to which the Church was near. In addition to your historical significance the Chapel is a treasure inestimado for the brazilian art, so much that it is listed as Brazilian national heritage, being one of the few examples of Baroque "pure" (without Mannerist influence, unlike churches mining operations). Shame the Government and the municipality don't appreciate this precious threatened.

  • A beautiful architecture, a listed heritage site. Too bad there's no maintenance, the Church is in a bad state of conservation.
