Located in the heart of the Historical Centre, the Igreja de Nossa Senhora do Rosario is the first church of the city for black people. Built in 1725 by the slaves themselves, the altar of the church is a magnificent example of the mastery the slaves of the late nineteenth century. The altar of St.Benedict in particular is resplendent in gold.
An interesting inclusion in the otherwise run-of-the-mill architecture is in the pulpit, where the crystal chandelier in the nave is supported by a pineapple. Nowhere will you come across a tropical fruit regarded as a part of a sacred piece of work.

Quaint church that takes you back a couple of centuries.
