Ingreja Matriz, Manaus

3.5
#5 of 11 in Historic Sites in Manaus
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.

  • In addition to the Church, which is beautiful, it is also worth knowing your surroundings, as the newly-reformed Praça da Matriz and the clock of the array. And then there's the ground Zero of the city of Manaus that is on this site.

  • I've been here in Manaus other times and I've never been able to reconcile a visit to church, this time I visited and I could enjoy the beauty of the architecture and also receive the blessing of our Lady da Conceição.

  • The Carmelite missionaries founded in 1695 first Manaus church dedicated to our Lady of the conception. On the ruins of this first chapel was erected in 1878 the current Matriz church, the Church is at the top of a square, so the framework gives a touch of imposing, from the courtyard River is seen. in the square is starting point of bus trips to different sites of Manaus
