Built on the former site where the Capuchin Friars built in 1656 1 Chapel, dedicated to n. s. da Penha. Its construction began in 1870 and completed in 1882. It is the only Temple in Corinthian style from Recife.

  • Very old architectural work and has been revitalized recently and was very admirable. Situated next to the famous Mercado de São José is a point of attraction.

  • Since the 17TH century in place, had the current configuration completed in the second half of the 19th century. inspired by Renaissance Basilica, is practically a copy of the Church of St. George the largest Venice. The doors there are notches with biblical scenes. In the nave, paintings of Domenico Botazzi and around the dome frescoes by Murillo La Greca. There are carvings of Valentino Bezarel, dozens of altars with santos in natural size, red marble columns impressing by set and grandeur. Every Friday the indicator b ~ attention of São Félix, throughout the day, causing thousands of people travel the site weekly. Is next to the San Jose market, in the Centre of Recife. Account with Reef project monitors, the Holy Church and its history for visitors.

  • Muito bom! Gostei.
  • Muito bom
  • A Igreja é muito bonita e grandiosa e é uma das inúmeras construções antigas que Recife e Olinda possuem. É enorme e não custa nada para entrar mas vale a pena saber os horários das missas, porque não abre todo o tempo.
  • Quase todas as sextas-feiras tem a bênção de São Felix.
  • Os Frades Capuchinhos celebram Missa: aos domingos, 8h; às terças-feiras, 11h30; às sextas-feiras (com a tradicional Bênção de São Félix), 6h, 7h30, 10h, 12h, 15h e 17h. Confissões são atendidas às terças, quartas e quintas-feiras, das 14h30 às 17h; e às sextas-feiras o dia todo.
