The Cirio de Nazare is Brazil’s most beautiful catholic event, and it’s been happening here, associated to this city, and more recently this church, for over 200 years. The church was built in 1852 on the site where an image of the Lady of Nazareth was found. You can still see the image inside the church, today. During the festival, the image is taken in a 2-million strong procession from Bethlehem Cathedral to the Basilica Sanctuary. Famous for its neo-classical and Moorish architecture, the church makes extensive use of marble work. Inside, the frescoes and wall paintings create lovely atmosphere. There are 5 large stained glass windows.

One of the most important landmarks of Belém. Incredible beautiful centuries years old cathedral.
Whether you're catholic or not, this Basilic is worth a visit due to its magnificent architecture and beautiful interior. If you want to experience a joyful time at this church, visit it at the beginning of October when the festivities of Nossa Senhora de Nazare are occurring in Belem.
