  • If you could choose the day to visit this beautiful church, go on a Friday and enjoy one of the blessings of St. Felix which are given after each mass. (at 6:00, 7:30, 10:00, 12:00, and 3:00 pm 5:00 pm). The Rite consists of the anointing with oil and sprinkling with holy water. The ceremony is held for over 70 years and can only be given by the Capuchin Friars. The Church is crowded with people a lot of faith that gets emotional with the Friar's blessing.

  • Newly renovated Basilica. Inner space beautiful. Despite the environment be in the works and without a lot of security, it is worth visiting the site by the grandeur of the monument that is also close to the famous ' Mercado de São José. In addition to popular shopping venues and many cafes and restaurants.
