  • You can reach the foot of the staircase by slope or by cable car, in this same area has a chapel, cafeteria, gift shop and etc, to climb to the sanctuary you can get another cable car or climb up the stepladders, reaching 382 upstairs sanctuary and a spectacular view of the city. An experience of peace and tranquility. NOTE: The cable cars as well as the visit to the shrine are for free.

  • The Penha Sanctuary is a visit not to be missed for all pilgrims who seek some peace and quiet. Situated in a wide green area, parking and some facilities to facilitate access. On Sundays you can visit also the room of miracles.

  • The vision of the city being in the Basilica is spectacular. If you know what is the Rio de Janeiro out of the South being at the top of that cliff. Reference of religiosity, the beautiful Igreja da Penha is a must-see place to be visited.

  • Cresci e me criei neste lugar magico
  • Lugar de profecias / fé nos pedidos e agradecimentos ao Senhor através de Maria, sua mãe santíssima / foi assim com a sobrinha Erika Agostinho que disse sim a gravidez da Manuela é todo ano ela vem de São Paulo agradecer pela Graça alcançada! Glórias e louvores a Ti Senhor.
  • Visão incrivel
  • Lugar maravilhoso!
  • Muito bom.
