First Church of Our Lady of the Remedies, Paraty
(4.2/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Construction on this beautiful Baroque church commenced in 1646 after the land was donated for the construction of Paraty. It would have been the oldest church you could visit in the town today had it not taken more than 220 years to complete. Instead, First Church of Our Lady of the Remedies will have to settle for being the largest, taking up an entire city block overlooking the lush Praça da Matriz. Inside, admire the handsome tiled floors, alcoves filled with local artwork, and a row of saint figures watching over the congregation. Attend mass to experience the warmth and vibrancy of the active church community. Use our Paraty tourist route planner to arrange your visit to First Church of Our Lady of the Remedies and other attractions in Paraty.

  • The colonial style is beautiful, but is deserving of a restore, the sides are a little bit punished by time. Still worth the visit for photo.

  • A beautiful historic building, there's no way to go through and not take a picture of wonder. And is right in the historic center of Paraty.

  • Paraty is a city with many churches, and of Nossa Senhora dos Remédios is one of the most imposing. Is located in one of the main squares of the city, with a cluster of bars and restaurants that make the place point of stopover.

  • Esta toda reformada, agora é manter!
  • uma bosta
  • Belíssima igreja!
  • Uma Igreja histórica de Paraty, que teve que ser reconstruída 3 vezes, por estar em uma área de mangue e suas fundações afundavam... em frente a igreja, havia um cemitério, que hoje é uma grande praça, onde você pode fazer uma passeio de charrete e conhecer vários lugares e história de Paraty. #Recomendo #GuiasLocais
  • Igreja aberta à visitação com algumas obras de arte e imagens sacras bem antigas. Uma pena que está muito mal conservada e praticamente abandonada. Tetos e paredes caindo, imagens sofrendo ação do tempo.
