Rosario church, Vitoria

4.3
#6 of 8 in Historic Sites in Vitoria
Built by slaves in 1765, Rosario church is one of the oldest churches in Brazil. The Baroque-style church houses a small museum with photos and items use for religion processions, a collection of religion icons, a neo-gothic altarpiece, and a cemetery in its corridors. No wonder it was registered as an artistic heritage in 1945 by Institute of

National Artistic Heritage. It is accessible by huge stairs facing the sea. Put Rosario church into our Vitoria trip maker to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Vitoria.

  • The Church of the Rosary is a mixture of history, faith and beauty. Have on your walls marks the history of ES and need always be restored to preserve this beauty.

  • The Rosario Church has a beautiful story! Built by slaves as a place to which they could pray and take refuge. Of the places we visited in the historic center, according to the guides, is what keeps most original features of your building! There's a ossario and a cemetery. The Church has a lot of wooden details. Really very interesting to visit.

The two main neighborhoods to stay in when exploring Vitoria are Praia do Canto and the area close to Parque Moscoco.
