  • This church was built in the 17th century by the Portuguese at the time of the reign of Afonso VI, King of Portugal, in tribute to the slaves. Worth a visit for those who like history and architecture. Decent conservation status.

  • Old church with your architecture preserved. Worth be visited along with the other historic centre not only by tourists and as residents of Recife also love history and appreciate the architecture

The brotherhood of the black men of the reef was established in 1654, and the Church had your conclusion between 1662 and 1667, during the reign of King Afonso VI of Portugal, worshipped by this institution that saves him a portrait painted in oil in the sacristy. On the altar there are black Saints as the King Balthasar, Are Elesbão, St. Benedict, St. Anthony of Categeró and Santa Iphigenia.

  • Oldest church of the brotherhood of Nossa Senhora do Rosário dos Pretos of Brazil, and linked to two Afro-oldest manifestations: the Congada and Maracatu Nation. Too bad it's not valued nor in Pernambuco and even in the country.
