  • No denying it: the highlight of the Church is not the attractive facade your impeccably painted and Yes to your location, many of which rise up to her to take the panoramic view of the hill where it is. Its inner part has no notability, but between seeing the interior your praising to Nazareth!

  • The postcard of Saquarema, must-see. Historic church on top of a small hill with beautiful view, not to be missed. Don't forget to visit the cave and the cemetery that lies behind. One of the very few cemeteries in the world that are on a cliff by the sea.

  • Positioned at the top of the Hill, allows an insider's view of the region making beautiful pictures of landscapes of the city. The Church was built upon the devotion of the Holy image found in 1630, after a violent storm by a fisherman who went out to see their nets near the sea, when passing over the Hill (where today is erected the array) saw a strong light, that when you get closer to the image of Mary (mother of Jesus) and gave him the title our Lady of Nazareth. Then take the image for your home, to protect it from the weather, gathered the whole village of fishermen and Indians for presents it. Keep the image and went to sleep, the next day discovered that the image was not in the same place, experiencing a great demand in the whole village, finding it shortly afterwards on the same hill where it was found, took her back to the House, but the next morning she disappeared again, being found in the same Hill, repeating other times, which led to raising a chapel on the Hill to shelter her, thus beginning the processions. The Church had several buildings in 1662, 1675 and the current structure of 1837. It is located in the back of the attachment also Church Cemetery projecting on the sea, and there are similar only in France

Where to stay in Saquarema

Most of Saquarema's accommodations concentrate on the lagoon's southern edge. Choose from costlier hotels with plenty of amenities, simple accommodations like bed and breakfasts, and budget hotels. Prices and levels of luxury tend to increase with proximity to the water, whether the lagoon or the sea. Head out of town a bit to the east or west for simpler, less expensive beachside rooms.
