Nossa Senhora do Amparo Church, Valenca
(4.3/5 based on 45 reviews on the web)
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.

  • A beautiful church, who is Catholic and for lovers of the art of the eighteenth century. And for those who enjoy a privileged view of the high of Amparo is possible to see part of the islands of Tinharé.

  • We didn't get a chance to walk down the aisle, just in the scene was worth it. It is located on the Hill and has a view of the city and the river. And to the right we can see the island of Tinharé (Morro de Sao Paulo).
