  • Beautiful baroque church, built in the 18th century. Well preserved, with original hard wood floors, lots of silver and gold in the altar.  more »
  • The Cathedral Basilica of our Lady of the pillar is just wonderful. Its collection Holy is a relic of the eighteenth and nineteenth century. I didn't pay a ticket because I attended the mass, which is very beautiful. The gold covering the major altar is impressive. The Baroque and the Rococo, that I don't know, are very explicit in this Cathedral. Ceiling paint is also great! Stay in the heart of the historic centre of SJDR, next to other churches and tourist attractions. Is a must!!!

  • Linda!
  • The building of the basilica was erected in stone masonry, and although save many baroque traits of primitive construction, shows some influence of neoclassical aesthetics, introduced in the extensive reforms which it has undergone in the 19th century. In your front was built a churchyard with stone paving, to which they have access by a staircase, being surrounded by iron and stone pilasters. [3] the facade is an imposing, divided into tripartite scheme common in colonial times, composed of a central block for the body of the temple and two towers on the sides. Five doors open at ground level, two of them under the towers, and is highlighted. At the top level line up five large Windows look the same with balustrade. All openings have stone and frame a curved Dick, but are stripped of ornaments. On the body of the building was planned a triangular pediment typically neoclassical, including a Medallion embossed with the image of the Lamb of God. On the set was installed Grand Cross, and on the sides there are spires shaped vase. The two towers have round arches to the bells and are secured with spires of five square party, embellished with pinnacles shaped vase. [3] the plant has the typical layout of the colonial period, with a single nave with a barrel vault ceiling lowered, altars on the sides, a chorus over the entrance and a separate deep chancel the ship for a monumental arch.

  • A complete work of art! Fully crafted in wood carvings, rich Baroque architecture. Cobra-if a small value for the visitation: 5 and a half real 2.50 for over 60 years.

  • Linda Church. The richest and gold of all. Released to take pictures. Entry $10.00, but is very worthwhile.
