Igreja Nossa Senhora das Dores ( Capelinha), Paraty

4.4
#3 of 13 in Historic Sites in Paraty
Religious Site Architectural Building
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 Church was closed by the priests sold rights to the FLIP, the wild thing with tourists and Catholics. We did our complaint to the IPHAN

  • It is an emblematic corner, where this this church, in front of her was a man of color, dressed as a slave with chains and as if were in a supported stone, the truth that was a little shocking, I did not like because what poor slaves suffered, it came to mind but good, is as a changa for the earns a few pesos with photo.

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.
