Catedral De Sao Pedro De Alcantara - Review

The church’s architecture would be enough of a reason to visit, for it’s beautiful, a soaring French neo-Gothic structure that took nearly 88 years to construct. However, it is also the royal Mausoleum, where the Emperor Dom Pedro II; Empress Teresa Cristina; Princess Imperial Isabel and her husband Prince Gaston the Count of Eu are buried. The highlights of the church are:

  • The Royal and noble tombs
  • The 70 metre high tower with its carrilon of 5 bronze bells
  • A main altar of limestone
  • The Carrara marble statue of St. Peter of Alcantara
  • The beautiful stained glass windows with poems by the King impressed on them
  • The 2400 kg main doors
