  • The chapel of Our Lady of Sorrows belongs to the Holy House of mercy and is the only building in neo-Gothic style of the city. A lot younger than the other churches of St. John, she has her charm and worth the visit. Is not located in the historic center, but it's pretty close to him and meet, even if it is only a view of its facade.

  • The only Gothic-style Church of Sao Joao del Rei, popularly known as "Church of the Holy House", as a city dweller I can say that it is difficult to find this church with the doors open, a shame because it's so pretty inside. The memory I have of the interior is the marriage of an aunt and I had less than 5 years of age. My review is on the outside, is located next to the Santa House and opposite the College of our Lady of Sorrows, unfortunately not so valued and not (as far as I know), there is an old photo very famous here in the city, a photographer was hovering over the tower and noticed a hawk chasing a dove, near the lightning rod Dove dodged but not Hawk and ended up getting stuck to the lightning rod for one of the wings and just dying. The photo clearly shows the hanging. If I'm not mistaken there's celebration of mass on Saturdays but would have to check with someone. My high score is by the beauty of the Church.

  • Different from other churches in the city for its Gothic style. It's pretty good, but could have the most well-kept gardens and street underground wiring should be to enhance the architecture and avoid the visual pollution. An oversight unnecessary.

  • Única igreja em estilo gótico da cidade.
