The curch is organized and clean. There is a shop for souvenirs and holy images of the Catholic Church. Some people makes meetings during day or night, and is possible know the culture maintained for the church.

The church is truly beautiful. My wife and I attended a service there after our visit. The three priests were very kind and tried to make visitors confortable. Check the store next door to buy religious gifts if you will.

The church is famous and huge! It is full of colors and a very special place to go in Belém. It might be even better during the festivities of the Cirio de Nazaré.

Of course I am a bit biased....I was married here 15 years ago. One of the most stunning churches I have ever been to.

This is a lovely Church, almost fully restored, with elaborate mosaics throughout. Many have unexpected modern touches - check out the triangle above the main entrance that includes images of natives as they were found in the 1500s, a pope, and a few guys in suits and ties (I guess the guys who paid for the restoration). The right front... More

The Basilica besides being the shrine for Our Lady of Nazare, the object of one of the main catholic devotion in the world, is beautifully decorated, being an oasis of peace and faith in Belem.

Rather a religious spot, of minor, if any touristic relevance. Not worth the time to get there. Second Sunday of October, the place is filled with more than 1 million people who come from all over Brazil. Make your hotel reservation well ahead of time as the hotels get fully packed during this time.

Not much history here. The old churches fortress and buildings are all in Cidade Velhor or Campina areas of the town
