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.

  • Here is the mother church of the historic center of Paraty. Automatic stop location for pictures and contemplation of preserved architecture. At night the place is full of stalls with food and toys for the kids to be happy. Can you imagine that not much has changed the routine around this Church since the colonial period. Follows as a meeting point for locals and tourists to this day.

  • With a quick tour you can get an idea of the sacred architecture of the time. Well maintained, worth knowing and a prayer thanking the opportunity!

  • 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.
