The Brotherhood of Our Lady of the Rosary of Black Men Was founded in the year 1715. In 1753, they were allowed to build a church of their own. The church you see today was completed in 1822. As a religious monument from Brazil's colonial times the church is considered as a national monument. The highlights of the church are the ornate detail on the side altars, the simplicity of the main altar, the tuscan pilasters, the church's iconography and the use of stone in the construction of the entablature, pediment, consoles and coruchéis. Though often regarded as a transitional Church, the building's architecture has been the subject of some controversy, with one expert stating that it is neither Rococo nor Mannerist, but rather a traditional Baroque monument.
