  • The construction of the Church by the Jesuits began in 1640, with the goal of catechesis of the Indians of the region. Very well preserved. Recommended ride.

  • The Museum has a collection of Baroque art and religious art very interesting. There is information about the history of the Jesuits and the building, but are very scarce. Unfortunately, the conservation of the Museum and your collection is very precarious. But it is worth visiting. The price of the whole entry is $ $8.00.

  • Baroque church of about 1690, one of the oldest preserved in the State and one of the first goods tumbled by IPHAN in São Paulo in 1938. Visited and admired by Mário de Andrade, who believed that the Baroque style of this church was a peculiarity unique in Brazil. The exhibit has works of sacred art from the 17th century to the 20th century, and one of the oldest organ still preserved throughout the Brazil. Worth the visit!
