  • The Church surprises ... the vision of its exterior doesn't give the slightest clue as to the wealth and beauty of its interior. In fact, this was the value in force at the time: the inner beauty should overlap to outer beauty. The Church was built by slaves who had their freedom purchased by slave/King Chico Rei, in appreciation of freedom. Beautiful story, which is best told by a guide. I suggest always walk around in Black Gold with the help of a guide.

  • If you visit the rich churches have to visit this, or only half of the story. The slope to get to there is difficult question!

  • The history of segregation of churches for blacks and targets is very well told in every one of these churches.
