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.

Not often will you find a church with wall paintings in Brazil so Sao Pellegrino is truly special.
