    The old church was designed at the behest of the Jesuits to be the largest church in the municipality. The maid would imprint. The beginning of your construction is of the early 19th century. Your grand design made the City Council conclude the works in day 6 of August of 1853. According to the minutes of the Municipal Council building, the Church of the square of the field, as it was known at the time, demanded more than 40 contos de Reis and approximately 50 years to complete, while the Church of St. Matthew, who was already with the early works, would require no more than 8 contos de Reis for completion. For this reason the works were closed. The masonry used was stones and mortar made of whale oil and lime. The stones used came in weights of ships that dock at the port of St. Matthew. Cal was already removed from Shell mounds, which were easily found in the region of New Bar. Many of these stones of the foundations of the old church were used by villagers for the construction of buildings in the city. According to older residents, the Church would be dedicated to São Brás.

    The old church as patron São Brás, but was never completed. The ruins are illuminated at night, but who visit them during the day should take advantage of the beautiful view of the Cricaré River, which is very close.

Where to stay in Sao Mateus

The main choice when it comes to finding accommodations in Sao Mateus centers on whether you wish to be by the coast and take day trips into town, or vice versa. Lodgings in the urban area by the coast vie for positions near the sand, and the view from your room will largely determine the difference between budget and standard prices. Heading west and into the historical town, find attractive old hotels whose archaic sense of grandeur makes them attractions in themselves. Elsewhere, the side streets offer plenty of smaller, humble accommodations, such as simple hotels and guesthouses.
