About Basilica De Nossa Senhora De Nazare, Belem
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.
