Santuario Nossa Senhora do Rocio, Paranagua
(4.1/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The Church is beautiful and is the shrine of Nuestra Señora del Rocio. But for Catholics and for those who believe in Our Semhora the location is divine and sacred.

  • It's must-see for fans of religious tourism. The surrounding area has industrial and occupation, the front of the church there is a beautiful view of the Bay of Paranaguá and the port. Recommended guided tour, since the neighborhood doesn't have much movement of people out of periods of worship or events.
