Igreja Nossa Senhora das Dores ( Capelinha), Paraty
(4.3/5 based on 260+ 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.

  • The city is more than amazing. The Church is a cultural icon strong locally. Worth knowing and walk back through the exciting streets of cobblestone. < 3

  • Excellent and traditional place for pictures. If you're lucky, you may still have a tourism guide right next to character as a slave, explaining the history of the Church and of paraty. Great place for photos.
