  • Although they had overthrown the old array that was next to that, which I think is a crime against history, I find this very nice building, has very impressive stained-glass Windows and beautiful chandeliers. The images of Saints on the sides in real size are worth the visit.

  • A beautiful Catholic Temple, in the central square of the city. A place for prayer and silence. It is worth to know him.

  • Visit the inside with time to enjoy the stained glass and the construction of the columns supporting the roof. Is indescribably beautiful, visit and will have memories of this magnificent building.

  • Wonderful church. It could be better maintained, though.
  • This is a historical photo of 1955. This church is part of the lives of several people and families of the city. Were concluded several marriages, baptisms and masses that fuse with the own history of Viçosa
