First Church of Our Lady of the Remedies, Paraty

(4.2/5 based on 800+ 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.

  • Very beautiful, we don't get in, but renders excellent photos, meet you with a guide and know of the story is the best option.

  • The Church is very pretty, but it's worth a visit right unkempt. It is easy to access and how well the former has a beautiful architecture.

  • I was staying in a hostel which is right close to the Church and all the time spent there. Sensational this construction, very typical of the city and really shows the culture there. Is a must. Can not help but be moved by the beauty of the place.

  • 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.
