When walking around the praca da Liberdade, this church drew my attention. It looks quite impressive. Inside, it is like many other churches.

I don't think this basilica is nearly as old as it's trying to look. Designed in a very European, gothic style, it's actually a relatively modern building. Regardless, there is really, really impressive stained glass that is definitely worth checking out.

I went to a lovely evening wedding here in late January 2017. The church is bright and ample and the altar is lovely. A band played from a corner to the left. Even empty the church is very pretty.

Came upon this basilica whilst in a business trip. Lovely from the outside, and curiosity led me inside. Beautiful and touching. A small section with a replica of the grotto in Lords and the apparition of the Virginia Mary.

Nice church...I got married there...is famous and is in central area of Belo Horizonte. It is easy to go there by bus or walking if you will be in the central area. Wonderful style, and inside you can feel like heaven, peacefull place.
