  • I was in the city of Gramado during the Christmas light, is a sensational event that involves the whole city with a light show. The Church as the whole town is extremely decorated.

  • Igreja imitando catedrais de pedra. É deslocado, mas bem diferente, vale um passeio rapido.
  • Igreja muito bonita tanto externa quanto internamente.
  • Lindo para tirar fotos.
  • Lindos vitrais!
  • It is not big but it is really very cute. It has a different architecture and original. Inside there's important and majestic ornamentation but the stained glass are rather incredible that I have not seen elsewhere. Day they are beautiful but night light and illuminated look from the outside are beautiful. It is on the main street in a very nice setting the square that surrounds the sculptures. Everything is cute. Do not be puedenir to Gramado and not pass out there. It is not majestic, but it has a very particular charm. Don't miss out on seeing it at night
