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.

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...

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.

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.
