  • An old church beautiful. Very well preserved, even when I visited was going on a wedding. It is close to Anchieta Palace.

  • Although the last restoration of the building, which is a fine example of Neo-Gothic, have been very well executed, the colors used inside devalue its beauty. Previously, they used bright colors with little contrast between the walls and the decorative elements (window frames and structural elements of the style (which, in the case of the Cathedral must be just adding on the grout and not the structure itself). Now, used light grey walls and very dark gray in these elements, which causes a visual clutter, resulting in a considerable reduction of the perception of time and space.
