  • The Church is beautiful! The square in front is quiet to take the kids at the end of the day or after the mass of 5:00 pm.

  • I was two days in Viçosa and went twice to the Church. I could see that the people of the city is very religious because whenever I was there were a lot of people in the Church. I enjoyed the architecture and at the entrance there are two beautiful images of Santa Rita and n. s. Aggarwal. The altar of the Church is also very beautiful. Worth the visit.

  • A cute little church in the Centre of Viçosa. Is not very rich in internal and external details, but is well cared for. Worth a quick to meet.
