  • Also known as Church do Senhor dos Passos. Despite the controversies that I could find there are those who say that it is the first church built in the Brazil. It would actually date from 1526, although some say that it is from 1530. Originally built with rammed earth and should be rebuilt in 1535. The current appearance dates from 1776. Its interior has a very primitive style with images of Baroque style, being one of the most prominent of the Senhor de Passos of 1585, featuring glass eyes, teeth of ivory, natural hair hair and tiny droplets of blood made with rubies. There is also a life-size carved wooden crucified Christ on the building runs the Museum of sacred art of the city

  • I went for a holiday in November and was closed. I don't know the reason. Stay Uptown, next to the historic centre.
