Sao Jose de Macapa Church, Macapa

4.0
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.

Where to stay in Macapa

Macapa offers a relatively small variety of mid-range hotels and accommodation options. As this isn’t a common backpacker town, you may have trouble finding hotel staff who speak English, so come prepared to speak some basic Portuguese or bring a good phrase book. Look for accommodations in the center of the city to be within walking distance to most attractions, or stay near one of the few roads into town.
