  • It is a church built from the ruins (d) another, remaining d 7th century. Even not having a sacral style set, did not stop to be transformed into one of the most beautiful churches of São Paulo, thanks to its interior, masterfully painted and decorated by the talent of the brothers Gentili. The walls, as well as the stained glass Windows, depicting the life and death of the Patron Saint, San Roque. The compartment that houses the image of the Patron Saint represents the bottom life peregrina de São Roque. The Church has two magnificent murals in the rectory, next to the Gospel has the Prophet Elijah in the desert being comforted by the angel who brings him food, symbol of the Eucharist. Beside the epistola, São Roque in jail getting spiritual forces through Holy Communion. Complete the presbytery Angels representing the prayer and the sacrifice of the divine Eucharist and the Holy Spirit. The ceiling of the temple has the arc of the presbytery, the beautiful scene of the Annunciation and brings the glory of San Roque, the symbols of the theological virtues: faith, hope, and charity. The walls of the body of the Church bring the four evangelists, the explanation of the our father by unique symbols and high expression, as well as the seven sacrament. The images that adorn the Church are all of foreign origin and of great value.
