  • Stunning, entered the Church with my eyes closed and when I opened it was just shocking. She's totally Baroque, there is no space without adornment, all covered in gold. It differs in a detail of baroque churches, by staying near the port has made marble floor decorations from Europe.

  • Beautiful by where look you, but reminds me of Tepoztlan, Mexico. It is an unforgettable place, serves the people well, and there big crowds of people in this I resent. It's worth the visit.

  • The tour of this church is sensational for those who enjoy history. In it we find a museum that tells a part of the history of Brazil, especially at a time when Rio de Janeiro was the capital of the Empire. We understand the meaning of "santo do pau oco", visited the room where d. Pedro II was meetings and decisions, the room where the minutes of these meetings are kept, an ancient theatre and the tomb of Princess Leopoldina, among other things. Well worth the visit!

  • Magnificent Church, with one of the most beautiful I've seen q architectures. Easy access at largo da carioca, near subway station, access by a small ladder. 10.00 entry, there's no guide. Essential not to know when you go to rio de janeiro.

  • I spent around, after a day of extensive walk through downtown and ended up succumbing to heat and giving up, before viewing the access ... Where to enter?

Where to stay in Rio de Janeiro

Accommodations in Rio de Janeiro cover as diverse a spectrum as the city itself. At the top end, you can find plenty of luxury hotels along the beaches of Zona Sul, the city's southern zone, which includes the renowned Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. For something to suit a budget, but with good beach access, look around the less crowded neighborhoods of Catele and Flamengo. If you want to stay as centrally as possible, without feeling like you're in a business district, look for lodgings in the colorful, bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
