This Norman–Byzantine styled church was completed in 1922 by a German architect and is one of the premiere religious institutes of the country. A fine example of a Brazilian church, the stained glass windows inside including the 6000 pipes church organ. If you can, catch a Sunday mass at 10 am where the church is resonant of the charms of Gregorian chants.

One of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen. Very peaceful and delicious things (bread and biscuits) to buy from the shop, all made by the monks. The choir singing in Latin is superb.
The Cathedral of Mosteiro de Sao Bento, located in the city center of Rio de Janeiro, can be disappointing when you first arrive and see the cathedral. But with patience, go inside! You will see a magnificent decoration inside the building. Let’s say I saw the golden palace! Almost all of the walls of the architecture are decorated with pure gold and show the extreme of glamor. This Cathedral was built in the Portuguese colonial period. The palace to worship God must have been decorated with gold, which is the best material at the time. It reminds me Jerusalem’s temple covered with gold in and out of the castle and to the floor built by Solomon. Strongly recommended.
Very beautiful monastery and an intriguing church in the heart of downtown.
Love the litturgies and the Gregorian Choir singing in Latin & Italian. The blessings & Readings of the Bible are well Body& Soul & Spirit God Religare Act Day by Day ! Beside the Renaissance Architecture of the Giants Apostles & Saints & Jesus . Worth visiting always!!!
Sure worth a visit! It's good to remember it's not allowed to take photos inside it.
