  • Is in the central region and is lit up at night. Impresses with your size and provokes curiosity, who built it? For that? And when?

  • Ruins of an unfinished building. In every brick you will find the sweat of enslaved blacks who worked to build what would become the Cathedral of St. Matthew. More by lack of funding preferred to reform the Church and was the work. I can't say precisely the year the Church has the year 1823 headed next to the Bell, so I believe that the building has been interrupted before that.

  • Beautiful place, has many beautiful landscapes to photograph much landscaping, has no public restroom on site, tb has no place for a children's Club, located near restaurants, parking close, clean and preserved. Cultural heritage.

  • One of the main postcards of São Mateus. The old church is a historical heritage of the city, around 1596 began the work that would be the largest church in the city (it was never completed). Labour were the slaves and Indians, one of the interesting things about this church is the "cement" employee, a whale oil and lime. There is a legend that there are treasures hidden in the walls.

  • Beautiful building. Too bad it is too degraded, due not only to the weather, but the neglect of the town hall there's a time allowed free access of tourists within the same. Pigeon droppings, nests and trees are constant, which destroys more quickly the historical heritage. A shame.

  • The Church and a great place to make wedding photos, 15 years and among others. At sunset the photos are wonderful, and very ancient Church of a rustic touch in the photos. I don't know if you have to get permission from the city, because her and locked more likely, but is very worthwhile.
