Architectural Building
Don't let the simplicity of Our Lady of O Church's facade fool you, inside the tiny, 18th century baroque church the walls and ceiling are lined with sumptuous paintings and gold detailing. Many of the paintings, which depict scenes from the bible, display a unique Chinese influence, possibly hinting at the nationality of the artist, and many of the faces of the biblical characters have Asian features.

  • Little visited. Church that sits at the entrance of the city of Sabara. Small, but interesting to be visited. All lined by religious paintings. External area very nice, with sidewalks and small houses. Worth sit back and let the time run without any rush of live.

  • The little church of o in Sabará has unique characteristics. One is that it was started and completed in full Baroque period, so the adornments are rich and vivid. The Church has on its side walls paintings with details of Chinese culture, as some pagodas. The altar is extremely ornate bolstering the veracity of your construction period. The location in the city is very easy because it can be seen from various points of the city. Admission is 2 real. A minimal value, for cultural value size.

  • The Church is just a show. Simple on the outside but incredibly beautiful inside. A special thanks to the Church receptionist, Miss. Fabiana, who in addition to collect tickets (service) gave a concert on the information about the Church. Girl, I wish deeply that someone discover that your talent. You exceeded all expectations.

  • Beautiful church that presents the first phase of Baroque ornamentation. A super educated guide welcomed us and told curious stories of the place. She is beautiful inside and out, well little one! Selling crafts in largo where is little and too little elaborate, but worth the visit!

Simple, your interior facade draws attention by the richness of the pulley, the first phase of the Baroque, Portuguese National style.

  • So small, it looks like a Dollhouse. The interior, brings the rich elements of the first phase of the Baroque. It has an altar, with concentric arches and twisted columns. In paintings, the biblical characters that reflect the eastern influence. At the altar, the image of n. s. of expectation of Good birth, one of the few that show the Holy pregnant.
