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.

  • Nice to know places that are part of both local history and the history of Brazil. Old building and preserved.

  • Interesting construction. Good architecture and great historical value. Itanhaém is known as the second population created by the colonizers. The Church opened in 1761.

  • Very interesting to discover historic places. I like the architecture of the Church passes an air of tranquility in a busy square.
