    Is located in the historic centre of Paranaguá and dates from 1794, having been built in stone masonry and in the purest Baroque style. Is a relatively small church and quite simple, with your ship and Chapel occupying the main space and the sacristy in the back. The building came to be abandoned for a long period after 1961, having suffered a large fire in this same time that destroyed his two side altars. From 1984, the Church was administered by the Municipal Government of the city and received a good restoration, but in March 2009 the Diocese of Paranaguá took over the building and use it only for liturgical purposes.

    The historic churches are the only works of old architecture that remains well preserved and manutenidas. Unfortunately the rest of the town is abandoned.

    The churches of Paranaguá are the connecting link of the distant past with the present in the city. Not to be missed, the San Francisco das Chagas follows the typical architecture of the 18TH century, see the of Antonina, Guaratuba, etc. Internally a characteristic note of that time: the width is greater than the entry until the beginning of the altar where it is narrower. Has few Windows and also has those sacadinhas around the aisle (two on each side), the lining of the roof is wood. Situated right in the historic centre.

Where to stay in Paranagua

The largest selection of accommodations in Paranagua clusters in the historical center, with atmospheric bed and breakfasts and modern boutique hotels. Move away from the waterfront area for more economical options, such as simple hotels and comfortable rental apartments. If you want to get out of town to explore the wider region, consider staying at one of the simple yet welcoming establishments along Avenida Bento Munhoz da Rocha Neto, an arterial road with plenty of bed and breakfasts and hotels along it.
