First Church of Our Lady of the Remedies, Paraty

(800+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building
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.

  • Impossible to go to Paraty and don't know the Church, she is a charm, but open all the time. The Church is situated in the historic center of Paraty, on the square where the big events happen in the city. Around the Church, you have a choice of bars and restaurants.

  • Very well maintained, beautiful on the outside and inside, accessible on foot, in the historic centre next to the side of the River, which makes her even more beautiful.

  • Church is well preserved on the inside and is beautiful! Worth the visit and view the architecture. Still happen masses, not just a museum.
