Ingreja Matriz, Manaus

3.4
#5 of 12 in Historic Sites in Manaus
Religious Site Tourist Spot
The building you see today was built when a fire destroyed the original in 1850, using materials imported from Europe; the six bells and the limestone for the altar and font, in particular, came from Portugal. As you climb the lyre-inspired steps leading to the Ingreja Matriz, you will notice the beautiful neoclassical-style façade, with its simple, straight lines. Inside is sparsely decorated, but you will find a small museum dedicated to the church’s rich history, as well as an exhibition of religious garments, and the wooden chair used by Pope John Paul II when he visited Manaus. Put Ingreja Matriz and other Manaus attractions into our Manaus travel itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
