  • For those who like to enjoy sacred art, this is a visit not to be missed. The interior is very well restored and there is a profusion of beautiful details to be observed.

  • It is a different church. It began to be built in 1759 and was officially opened in 1865 by the Emperor Pedro! and Teresa Cristina. It is a protected historic site. At the entrance there are explanatory brochures. Within walking distance of the Portuguese Royal Bibliotega. It is worth to get to walk around in this neighbourhood, very close to the station Uruguaiana and Avenida Rio Branco.

  • I ended up going in this church by accident, because I was looking for the Church of S.F. of penance, was a pleasant surprise. That wonderful Church! The architecture is a masterpiece!! Worth more worth knowing. I got off at the station and I walked from Rio de Janeiro. Very quiet.

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.
