Nossa Senhora do Rosario dos Pretos, Sao Luis

4.3
Simple and small, Nossa Senhora do Rosario dos Pretos is located in the city’s historic center. This church was used by the local slave population during colonial times, and was therefore not greatly decorated or embellished. A guided tour can take you to this well-preserved historic site, which today serves as a reminder of a deep gulf that once separated the black slave community from their white European masters. The church, built in 1772 and dedicated to Our Lady of the Rosary, features several images of its patron saint and walls covered with panels made of colorful tiles, for which this region is renowned. Nossa Senhora do Rosario dos Pretos is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Sao Luis Edition.
