  • It is a beautiful church, typical Church on the square, with a beautiful architecture and great for masses on Sundays.

  • I love to visit this church mainly during the Holy week. The rituals are gorgeous, the smell of incense and other flavourings, moisten the environment and makes it mystical. Inside I feel elevated to a privileged place.

  • 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
