Capela Nossa Senhora das Dores, Paraty

4.3
#3 of 13 in Historic Sites in Paraty
You will find Paraty’s youngest church overlooking the Baía de Paraty, its rustic, white façade asymmetrical due to a planned second tower never being built; atop the existing tower, you will see a cockerel-shaped weathervane. Despite major renovations at the turn of the 19th century, the interior of Capela Nossa Senhora das Dores is simple, but you can see intricate, hand-carved woodwork on the balconies and choir partition. In the inner courtyard, you will find a columbarium-style cemetery, where the funeral urns of the town’s deceased are housed in small compartments.

    Historic Chapel, located in the historical centre, in the curve of the street. It was closed when we tried to visit her. Simple yet beautiful architecture. The note was due to the fact of not being able to see her inside.

    Walking through those beautiful streets of stone will reach this Chapel, that I the times I went found it closed, is equal worthwhile, as it takes back to whom the notes to Portuguese colonial times.

    I went there and I really enjoyed, but I believe that such visits only makes sense with a guide, so that you understand the symbols present in it.

Where to stay in Paraty

If you want close proximity to raucous summer nightlife and some of the best things to see in Paraty, look no further than the historical center. There you can choose from any number of guesthouses, inns, and boutique hotels, which integrate seamlessly into the town's colonial architecture. If beach access is your primary concern, cross the canal and head a few minutes north, until you arrive at the coastal neighborhood of Jabaquara, where you'll find a range of cozy options. Farther from the center, the hillside neighborhood of Pantanal offers something a bit quieter among the trees.
