  • Belonging to the Congregation of Benedictine nuns, the place breathes joy and peace. Produces a wonderful bread and that must be purchased.

  • If you are Catholic, it is worth climbing the front slope of the monastery and enter in the chapel of the Virgin for a prayer. The Chapel, simple, is decorated with beautiful paintings and has a modern look, and simple (I repeat), which is the faith to be more valued.

  • A quiet, mystical place, full of the presence of God. Worth watching the mass on Sundays and stop a few minutes there to pray.

  • A mystical place. The Sunday service, 10:30, with Gregorian chant is unique. The nuns are sweet! We felt very welcomed.

  • I attended the mass with Gregorian chants that is taught Monday through Saturday at 7:00 and on Sundays at 10:00. Very pretty. Talking with the Administration in advance, it is possible to order bread and some other products made directly by the nuns.

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.
