Church Tourist Spot
Completed in 1780, on the site of an older and more modest chapel, Nossa Senhora do Amparo Church features two iconic domes, covered with blue and white tiles. Dedicated to Our Lady of Perpetual Help, the well-preserved rectangular church consists of nave, chancel, and sacristy, and includes a clock tower that was added in 1822. Inside you can see five white Neoclassical altars, gilded woodwork, and several sacred images of saints, painted in oil by unknown artists. The church is situated on a hill that offers panoramic views of the entire city, so be sure to bring your camera when visiting this historic city landmark.

  • Beautiful visual even with rain, the lost beauty of Valença. The Una River running by the foot of the Hill and opening as a path toward the horizon with mangroves. Unfortunately I haven't found the Church open and your maintenance leaves something to be desired. Good for sunset.
