Santa Cruz Chapel, Maringa

4.7
#2 of 6 in Historic Sites in Maringa
Santa Cruz Chapel is an important part of the city’s historical heritage, opened originally in 1946 and recently extensively restored. The chapel was erected with the help and cooperation of local residents, who financed the construction using their private funds. It was the very first church built in the urban area of Maringa, and has remained a favorite wedding location for young couples living in the city. The chapel features paintings and sacred images, some of which were imported from Spain. Make this historic site a brief but mandatory stop on your tour of the region to learn about the city’s rich cultural, artistic, and religious heritage. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Maringa holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Santa Cruz Chapel and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

    This chapel has no tourist attraction. I'm from Maringá and never took anyone to know because I don't see anything different unless the fact be wood.

    Two churches must be visited by tourists: Maringá 's Cathedral and the Santa Cruz Chapel, attached to the College that bears the same name. With wooden environment the Chapel is very cozy and represents well the time it was built, early in Maringá

    One of the oldest and most beautiful in town, small but very cozy, it's worth a visit to meet or join a church, because you still have baptisms, masses and weddings.

Where to stay in Maringa

You're most likely to find accommodation in the central grid of Maringa, which is bisected by the railway line and lies just north of the iconic Cathedral of Maringa. Stay in one of the larger hotels in the city center--and ask for a south-facing room--to experience views of the spiked cathedral from the comfort of your suite. If you want to make the most of the city's vast green spaces, stay near one of Maringa's biggest urban parks, Parque do Inga or Bosque 2. If you're driving and just planning to spend one night, you can find accommodations along the main arteries in and out of town.
