This beautiful 18th century Rococo Catholics church was unique when first built in Brazil. Though it is not very large, it is considered to be a masterpiece by Brazilian sculptor and artist Antonio Francisco Lisboa, also known as Aleijadinho.

The highlights of the church are:

  • The circular bell towers
  • The ornate decorations on the pulpit, the altar, and the ceiling
  • The gilding and the gold leaf decorations
  • A large number of religious sculptures
  • The friezes above the doors and windows
