First Church of Our Lady of the Remedies, Paraty

4.0
#1 of 11 in Historic Sites in Paraty
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.

  • A well-maintained Church which suggests the colonial history of Paraty. Romanesque style. To see

  • Next to the pier, is a very beautiful church depicted in tourist photos of Paraty. Another postcard of this beautiful historic city.

  • Churches should always be visited. Always. Is a Catholic Church whose construction began in the 18th century and ended in the 19th century. Too bad you're needing restoration.

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.
