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.

  • Beautiful and full of history! The little church of the array is right in the historic center of Paraty, with easy access and must-visit! :)

  • I gave the luck of enters the Church and hear the chime played to announce the change of schedule. I lit my candle and began my journey by Paraty

  • The Church is impressive, with a beautiful interior. The only thing that intrigued me was the placing of A4 sheets of paper written by hand on the church door informing about the date of its foundation. It would not be possible on a whim a little bigger?

  • 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.
