Located right at the center of the city the Church of St. Peter Matrix is one of the highlights of Gramado. In the beginning it was just a wooden chapel in 1917 but later with the arrival of Father Guilhermino Maschio, in 1943 the church’s construction started and got finished 8 years later. Having a very Roman architectural style the church was constructed using about 78,000 basalt stones.
The stained glasses were painted by a German artist and represents biblical tales of Saint Peter and Jesus Christ. The church bell inside itself weighs about a 1000 kg. A prominent place in the city for all the Catholics, St. Peter Matrix looks wonderful at night with its decorations.
