Nossa Senhora do Rosario dos Pretos, Sao Luis

(45+ reviews on the web)
Church
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.

  • Small, simple and beautiful church. It was dedicated to blacks who could not attend masses in churches frequented by whites. It was renovated three years ago. Is it that focus the drums during the feast of St. Benedict.

  • The Church is quite simple and demure, and may go unnoticed to the unsuspecting while attempting to visit her.
