Beautiful church!

No doubt it is a point to visit while in Caxias. Great masterpieces and breahtaking art. At night, a special sight of the lights.

It is for sure a great art work to look at. Outside you don't realize how beautiful is inside. But once you got in you see Italian marble and European style inspired work. Worth to stop!

On the outside it doesn´t look like much but once you´ve gone in the artwork on the ceiling and on the walls are breathtaking.

This is without a doubt the best place to visit in Caxias. The church has an amazing architecture and art work which was performed by Aldo Locatelli which is a Italian-Brazilian painter. The art works took ten years to be completed and are considered his greatest works. The church also has a replica of the "The Pietà" sculpture by Michelangelo.... More

If you like painting, this church is definitely a must-go place in Caxias do Sul. Don't be fooled by the facade (which isn't especially beautiful) - the real gems are all inside. Take your camera and hold your breath.

The church is probably the nicest one in the city. The frescos of Aldo Locatelli and the Pieta replica is a must see.

Definately the most beautiful church in the city! It is a must go sightseeing! A lot of history and beautiful paintings from Aldo Locatelli. It's on downtown, so very easy to go, with a lot of different thing to see around either!

Not often will you find a church with wall paintings in Brazil so Sao Pellegrino is truly special. The architecture itself is pretty "normal", but once you walk inside you will see what the church is all about. Aldo Locatelli did a great job on the ceiling and walls of the church. Its three bronze doors by Augusto Murer are... More

Painted not in a traditional manner of fragile Jesus, Locatelli's works make you look at the body from a different angle and impress you by the stoic power of suffering and pain..The Church is certainly worth a visit..
