Santuario Nossa Senhora do Rocio, Paranagua

4.0
#4 of 10 in Sightseeing in Paranagua
Religious Site Tourist Spot
Situated on a historic site two centuries old, Santuario Nossa Senhora do Rocio is a major place of worship for devout Christians living in this region. A small church was built here in 1813, with the sanctuary added in 1920. Both are dedicated to Our Lady of Rocio, the patron saint of Parana. Devotion to Our Lady of Rocio began as early as the 17th century, when the area was hard hit by an epidemic of plague. Legend has it that a miraculous image of this virgin saint, capable of healing the sick, was caught in a fisherman’s net. Today, the church features several sacred images of Our Lady of Rocio and holds a festival in her honor each year in November. A visit to Santuario Nossa Senhora do Rocio represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Paranagua itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

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.

  • Excelente place to pray and see big merchant ships and apreciate the sunset. Beautiful statue of Nossa Senhora do Rocio. Great local parties.  more »
  • The Church is very important, but is very poorly cared for. Need of conservation. I went on a Tuesday afternoon and the Church was closed. Unfortunately does not match the grandeur of the religious feast of Nuestra Señora del Rocio.
