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.

  • It is the oldest monument of the city: your construction dates back to the 18th century, with your single, Bell Tower and your reformed façade to the neoclassical taste. Is greatly appreciated by your simplicity and beauty of your architecture, brought by the Jesuits Europeans in the 16th century. Opened on 6 March 1761, some modifications were made to the structure of the building after the arrival of the fathers of PIME (Pontifical Institute of foreign missions) in 1948. Its walls have headstones, they call the attention of visitors by keeping remains of illustrious figures of Amapá.
