    An amazing church built by one of the pioneer families of Penha in Paraty, the Saints two Carneiro family. It has a view very nice over the Valley and is a few meters from the Cachoeira do Tobogao.

    Erected on top of a rock, a wonderful place for those who like to exercise faith. To get to the Church, had to opt for a taxi, because it takes up a slope, not to mention the countless rungs of the ladder, but to our relief there is a funicular (kind of cable car) available for free. With a beautiful architecture and privileged view of the city Rio vista on top.

    The Church was erected by the Penha Family which gives its name to the site. Is a representation of the Penha Church of Rio de Janeiro. The family came to live on the site in the early 20th century and remained, making improvements on the site and made history.

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.
