Sao Jose de Macapa Church, Macapa
(3.4/5 based on 140 reviews on the web)
Built over 200 years ago, Sao Jose de Macapa Church marked the colonization of the city of Macapa. This church is rather small and simple, but it has much historical significance for this town. There is a unique image of the patron saint, St. Joseph, carved out of wood along with beautiful paintings on the walls depicting the artistry of biblical passages. Facing the amazon, this church is perfect for quiet contemplation and some rest. Attend on the mass services, which happen daily.

  • É o monumento mais antigo da cidade: sua construção data do século XVIII, com sua torre sineira lateral única, e sua fachada remodelada ao gosto neoclássico. É muito apreciada pela sua simplicidade e beleza da sua arquitetura, trazida pelos jesuítas europeus ainda no século XVI. Inaugurada em 6 de março de 1761, algumas modificações foram realizadas na estrutura do prédio após a chegada dos padres do PIME (Pontifício Instituto das Missões Estrangeiras) em 1948. Suas paredes têm lápides, que chamam a atenção dos visitantes por guardarem restos mortais de figuras ilustres do Amapá.
