I love this church. It's beautiful from the outside and even more special inside. From the outside you get great views of the city. Brazils kings and queens were baptised here.

This church (not to be confused by the similar named one at Largo do Machado) is a small baroque gem with blue Portuguese tile in the interior which is otherwise rather plain, not gold laden like so many similar type churches in the colonial towns. The overall effect is beautiful. The view from the top over Guanabara bay, Marinha da... More

A very nice old church just at the Largo Machado along Rua das Laranjeiras in Rio. The church is a beautiful building sitting at the side of the square. Worth visiting in conjunction with the square.

Small lovely baroque church (well maintained) with unusual ground plan on the top of the hill in the heart of the city with beautiful view of Rio de Janeiro. - what do you want more? Perfect. Popular for weddings. You can go up by free elevator or by smelly a little bit disgusting stairs. i recommend to visit it. The... More

This is the church where the portuguese court used to marry. It is all restaured and from there we have a nice landscape of the Guanabara Bay.

A gorgeous small church very well located. And a peaceful atmosphere from the top of its hill right in the heart of the marvellous city. As if it wasn´t enough the location and the very beautiful facade (barroque touch), the interior of this church, one of the most beloved by locals (and the favorite one for prominent´s marriage ceremonies) is...

I was the only one there so I am assuming not at the top of everyones list. It was nice to look at and not a bad view from the top but not really much there.

This is a lovely church. It is small, but that gives it a feeling of intimacy and warmth that some of the larger churches cannot achieve. When visiting we not only saw the church but also the Sacristy which made it even more personal. We certainly appreciated the view from the top having walked up the very steep steps from... More
