  • BASILICA OF Na Sra Da PENHA - Praza Sun Life 169 (Barrio de San José) Catholic church built between 1870 and 1882 by the Capuchin Fathers following the model of the Basilicas of the Italian neorrenacentistas (Corinthian style). It has a neo-classical facade and is inspired by the architecture of the Church of San Giorgio Maggiore. It is the only one in this style in the State of Pernambuco since most of the temples of that era that were constructed in Recife were Baroque. In the external dome there is a Virgin of pale as it was originally. On the altar images are carved in marble bas-relief of San Francisco and San Antonio. The traditional blessing of San Felix occurs in this Basilica. Dom Vital Museum has been temporarily removed from the Church and only left a monument on one of the aisles

  • 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.
