  • It's a church, that's all. ... For my taste, nothing more, I do not think it is a tourist attraction. Is in the Centre, in front of the square, is how tiny the town.

  • Does not have a long history since its construction began in 1930 and it took years to get ready. The construction of the towers was interrupted, would be higher, and never were in the original design, which was owned by a German priest. Worth the visit.

  • Located in Praça João Ribeiro, in the city centre, was built in basalt stone, very abundant in the region. Inaugurated in 1935, very beautiful with two towers features sculptures of biblical prophets and of Adam and Eve, on the outside of the Church. If you're in town and want to go to mass find out the time in the winter celebrations are earlier.

  • Muito bonita
  • Cidade tranquila, povo muito atencioso e hospitaleiro! Ótima pra quem quer descansar! Só se ouve o canto dos pássaros!!! É bastante frio durante todo o ano. No verão, a temperatura fica em torno de 15°C à noite!!!! Maravilhoso para os adoradores de inverno (como eu!!!)
  • Ponto turístico da cidade. Localizado na região central, próximo à hoteis. Legal para visitação e fotos
  • Bela Arquitetura
  • Não achei interessante, apesar de ser uma igreja muito antiga, só achei interessante um terreno ao lado que tinha uma criação de ovelhas.
