Fabulous old Portuguese style church

This is the best example of Portuguese ecclesiastical architecture that I know of in Sao Paulo. We attended an exceptionally elegant wedding there. Very beautiful.

After seeing a lot of churches in Spain, Rome, Belgium, France and other countries, I wasn't expecting to be wowed by this church on our city tour of Sao Paulo. However, it's really pretty and I'd say it was one of my favorite things from the tour that day. The paintings on the ceiling remind me of the Sistine Chapel... More

We went by metro from our hotel in the business district. With all the traffic better to take the metro as the church is in the old section of town. It is decorated differently than other churches in So. AM. The walls and ceiling are brightly painted. In front is the plaza with the marker where all miles are calculated.... More

I went to this church a couple of times attending weddings. This is a church where famous and rich people in Brazil get married. It is very difficult to find a spot to have your wedding celebrated and very expensive as well. In case you want to stop at this place you will find a church filled with religious art.... More

This cathedral is located between Jardins and Jardim Europa, two of the posh areas of SP. Its visitors couldn't be any different. It's a nice place, but the mood is usually very VIP.

Been there in a wedding ceremony. I've heard if you plan to get married there, reservation should be with at least 2 years in advance. I think it's because some celebrities got married there.

Many brides desire to get married there. It is a small church at Jardins county. The interior is decorated with some portuguese tiles. Its popularity, for me, is more related to tradition than beauty. I have seen more beautiful churches in SP but it is, of course, a traditional one...

Staying in Jardins

Neighborhood Profile
Located just below important Paulista Avenue, Jardins is the junction of four smaller neighborhoods: Jardim Paulista, Jardim América, Jardim Europa and Jardim Paulistano. It is an upper-class area, offering a variety of things to do, including shopping, museums and parks. The neighborhood is well known for “Oscar Freire”– the most luxurious street in the city, packed with high-end boutiques. In Jardins you will also find a trendy museum, São Paulo Museum of Image and Sound (MIS), which people often line up for hours to visit. If green space is what you're after, take time to relax at Trianon Park, a refuge in the heart of Paulista Avenue.
