  • The Church of mother of God is one of the most beautiful of the reef, lies on the island of the reef which has a set of architectural, with old buildings and ruins of the beginning of the brazilian colonization. Get there early on the island and go walking and discovering beautiful, personalized piece of that space. During the week has many dining options. A tour not to be missed.

  • The edification of the Church Mother of God was authorised in 1680, with the constructor and donor of the land the "Muscat" Antônio Fernandes de Matos. In 1709 the temple was completed, showing facade with two towers and the central body to stone. The interior of the nave is a large lounge with side chapels and a majestic severe monumental triumphal arch with two altars in the transept. The high altar is carved with niches and shrines golden throne in the Rococo style. The slotted liner of the chapel follows those of the chapels-mores of the Basilica of our Lady of Mount Carmel and the Concatedral de São Pedro dos Clérigos. The temple houses a few images that belonged to the primitive Church of Corpo Santo, demolished when the modernization works of the reef.
