  • Visiting a church is always worthwhile. And know some of the story too. Historical place and in a very nice place.

  • For those who like to know the history and follow-up of the discovery is a church (chapel) that maintained its architecture. First church in Brazil dedicated to Our Lady of Pena

  • We thought it was a beautiful place. It was the first time we visited her so we asked for three thanks, she gave us much peace and serenity especially at Easter time.
