The Candelaria Church can be considered to be one of the most historically important churches in the city of Rio de Janeiro. The church took quite a while to build with construction commencing in 1775 and ending in 1811.
This architecture of the church is a culmination of different influences. The outer facade follows a Baroque style of architecture while the interiors are designed in neoclassical and neo renaissance sensibilities. This is interesting to observe for anyone visiting this place. The fusion of cultures is sure to mesmerize you.
The infamous site of the Candelaria Massacre of 1993, the church has been in the limelight for such reasons. But truth be told, what it should be well-known for is its interesting architecture and striking beauty. Hence, it should certainly be on the itinerary of tourists in Rio.
- The church functions as a homeless shelter and also has regular masses.
- Masses: Monday to Friday: 12.15pm.

Super dark interior. Not much of interest. Some nice sculptures. Seats are quite unique, in wood and sculpted leather.
