  • Are two churches side by side, this is the old Cathedral. The unwary can get confused, thinking he is one, because the stone facades are very similar. The third order stands out by the towers and the exquisite interior, with side chapels.

  • A dip in the beauty ... an incantation to get into Church, I found everything beautiful. design is attributed to the Portuguese Manuel Alves Setúba, 17TH century. After the reformation and restoration was everything beautiful that moment against religious. have a visitor in part that was found during these works, but has a time, came after the 15 hs and I couldn't do it, I'm going back to complement this tour. The screens of the chapel are the work of colonial painter Manuel da Cunha.

  • The Ordem Terceira do Carmo worked in Rio de Janeiro since the 17th century, occupying a chapel next to the Convento do Carmo. The order decided to build a new Church in 1752. The main and lateral portals of the Church, in Portuguese lioz stone and containing medallions with the Virgin and child, stand out. Were commissioned from sculptors Lisbon and installed in 1761, and are considered the best of the kind in Rio de Janeiro. The Church has the only Baroque façade of the river entirely crafted in stone, and remained authentic. The Medallion portal, brought from Lisbon, inspired Aleijadinho in some of its mining works. It is worth noting the interior. The gilt from the Church in the Rococo style, is very valuable. Indoor decoration began in 1768 with the Carver Luiz da Fonseca Rosa, later aided by Valentim da Fonseca e Silva (the famous and talented Master Valentim). The chapel of the Novitiate, to the right of the chancel, is lined with gorgeous carved Rococo Master's and one of his masterpieces, carved between 1772 and 1773. The screens of the chapel are the work of colonial painter Manuel da Cunha. Worth a visit not only for the historical importance, like unique beauty.
