Capela Dourada, Recife
(4.6/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
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. Arrange to visit Capela Dourada and other attractions in Recife using our Recife trip itinerary planner.

  • Richly built, perfectly well maintained, with a guide to provide information, in the Centre of Recife, is an example of preservation and coordinated activities of Church and Government. Even for non-Catholics, worth a visit!

  • A very beautiful church, with several details that can be visited in the greater recife. It pays to know a little about what our colonizers left us.

  • The Church opened unexpectedly due to rotation. And immediately attracted attention. If doors are open, how not to go. And offers an amazing interior design. God, what a beauty!
