Architectural Building Church
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.

  • It's a very iconic church, with a profuse decoration. Unfortunately it's not in its best shape. For sure, if you don't have time to spare in Sabará visit only this building and that's enough.  more »

  • 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!

  • Chapel of Nossa Senhora do Ó (Largo do Ó N.S.) dated 1717, is considered one of the richest Baroque representations of mines. Simple, your interior facade draws attention by the richness of the pulley, the first phase of the Baroque, Portuguese National style. Presents Chinese influence on architecture and interior decoration. The cult celebrated to the tune of the antiphons preceded by the expression "' ...", originated the devotion to Nossa Senhora do Ó. Operation: daily, from 8:00 to 5:00 pm. Closing for lunch from 12:00 at 1:00 pm. Visitation rate: $2.00.

  • 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.

  • Igrejinha pretty well and with an interesting story. Part of the first cycle of the Baroque.
