  • Linda Church, with stunning Beach both imagined village as Itaúna and the city. Turn on perfect to sit and admire. Has a beautiful cave worth knowing.

  • I only saw the Church on the outside and reminded me a lot of the Penha Church in Rio de Janeiro. In colonial style, painted blue and white, sits on top of a hill where you can see the lagoon of Saquarema.

  • This church is very beautiful, the postcard of the beautiful city of Saquarema. Up the hill where she is located at vista is too pretty! In addition, the lighting at night gives a special touch!

  • 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
