Matriz de Sant'Anna Church, Itanhaem

(4.1/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Built in 1761 by the early Portuguese settlers of the area, Matriz de Sant'Anna Church is located in the heart of the city. Constructed on the site of an older church, which is said to have been one of the earliest Christian structures in Brazil, the simple white building once dominated this part of the city. Today, the site is a great photo opportunity for passing tourists. This historic building is an important part of the city’s rich cultural and artistic heritage, and you can visit it to hear daily mass and see a small collection of sacred art.
