Nossa Senhora do Rosario dos Pretos, Sao Luis
Categories: Churches, Tourist Spots
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. Make Nossa Senhora do Rosario dos Pretos a part of your Sao Luis vacation plans using our Sao Luis family vacation planner.

It's a very nice man dedicated to please visitors. The rest of the city is in a bad state of repair. The ruins full of grass and dirt, smelling, are used as a toilet. It's not like living from tourism. The people rude and unpleasant.show original
