Igreja Nossa Senhora das Dores ( Capelinha), Paraty

(4.3/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
You will find Paraty’s youngest church overlooking the Baía de Paraty, its rustic, white façade asymmetrical due to a planned second tower never being built; atop the existing tower, you will see a cockerel-shaped weathervane. Despite major renovations at the turn of the 19th century, the interior of Igreja Nossa Senhora das Dores ( Capelinha) is simple, but you can see intricate, hand-carved woodwork on the balconies and choir partition. In the inner courtyard, you will find a columbarium-style cemetery, where the funeral urns of the town’s deceased are housed in small compartments. Our Paraty tourist route planner makes visiting Igreja Nossa Senhora das Dores ( Capelinha) and other Paraty attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Close access to the pier was closed. Had a boy dressed as a slave in door staging historical passages and telling stories of slavery. Yields good pictures.

  • neglected facade but the story told by the Guide has all that symbolism is reflected mainly in the architecture. It is worth taking some pictures. A pity that all the churches is the only one that I couldn't access the inner part
