Visit Capela Dourada, a jewel of Brazilian Baroque, which may even go unnoticed by those passing by in the streets. Peruse the various well-preserved rare images and religious artifacts, including the golden cross of Christ suspended with silver and gold rays shining behind his head. Pay attention to all the material covered in gold, making it no surprise that it’s known as the “golden chapel”. The gardens and courtyard outside serve as a peaceful oasis, providing tranquility from the busyness of the city.

  • A beautiful baroque architecture, a lot of great detail and shine! A place to visit thinking on ostentation of Church from the 17th century.

  • Otimo
  • Uma bela construção no estilo barroco.
  • Muito bom
  • Ponto turístico.
  • Foi construída em 1690 em posição perpendicular à igreja do convento franciscano. Coberta em talhas douradas e painéis com pinturas de santos e mártires. Integra o museu franciscano de arte sacra. Fica próximo ao Palácio do Campo das Princesas e do Teatro Santa Isabel e um pouco mais longe, o Marco Zero. Vale a pena a visita nesses locais.
