  • Yes, we must remember that it all began with some Germans who went to Australia and were convinced to stay here ... The community has managed to make a relay between its members so that there's always a volunteer to keep the Church open for visitation (better walking; facing the Cathedral, take the street on the left and walk about 400 m down the street Ipiranga, is right in front of the House where he died Rui Barbosa). Right away you will notice they are a Evangelical Church of Lutheran confession in Brazil (fancy name huh?), because the font is out front, for the whole community to see who is the newest member, and who are the godparents. It has stained glass Windows characteristic of most Lutheran churches. Those in the Windows along the nave, has the Luther Rose, a symbol that represents and differentiates these early divergent of the Roman Church to the end of the middle ages. In the living room to the left of the altar (who goes by the Church), has a collection of objects, pictures and photos of shepherds and SHEPHERDESSES (Yes women ahead of the community!); as well as historical objects, as the nails from the original church, the official community Bible and highlight for the Playmobil Edition of 500 years of reformation (2017). Leaving, don't forget to notice the pipe organ on the mezzanine. Those cults are Sunday morning (09:00 h), the panels with the numbers – on both sides – are the hymns to be sung by the community.

  • Very beautiful inside and out, and quite interesting. The entrance is for free. The only downside is the difficulty to park.

  • Beautiful church with Gothic strokes, but was closed when we went and there was no one to give more information ... all boiled down to a label in front of the Church.

  • When I went there (6:00 pm) the gate was closed. So, I could only watch the facade, on the outside of the gate. But the Gothic architecture of the early 20th century is really beautiful. Merce a visit.

Where to stay in Petropolis

Unfortunately, no matter how much you're willing to spend, your accommodations in Petropolis won't be quite as luxurious as Emperor Pedro's former palace. Nevertheless, you can choose from a range of delightful guesthouses and boutique hotels during your Petropolis vacation, many of which are housed in well-preserved colonial buildings and offer spacious gardens to enjoy. The city's old center, with close proximity to the palace and the striking cathedral, remains the most popular neighborhood among tourists. However, you can also find a range of places to stay in the southwestern neighborhood of Quitandinha, which contains a scenic lake of the same name.
