  • Excellent. The Church is beautiful and worth to be visited in the city of Novo Hamburgo. Several wonderful paintings. the environment is comforting.

  • This is the Catholic Cathedral, very imposing, and traditional in the city; but without many internal architectural details.

  • Classical Catholic Church, fairly old for terms of Brazil, well located, good acoustics. What I like best are the paintings of the painter of Novo Hamburgo, esteemed and gifted, Marciano Schmitz.
