Very nice building, quite impressive in size, lighting and acoustic. A historic landmark situated in the old part of the city. If you are walking there, don't miss it.

Is a regular Brazilian catholic apostolic roman church. Could be visited in little time and has some caractheristics itens for the north of Brazil. Do this during the light day. It's not a very safe place.

Very nice place, quiet and spiritual. Please mind walking around at the street, not so dangerous but gringos might be approached. There are other sightseeing places at the same spot such as Relgious Art Museum, Casa das Onze Janelas (and its nice restaurant), the Fort and so forth.

A very classic church. Well mantained and beatiful. You will take nice pictures inside and outside - considering that the region is also well mantained (gardens and etc)

Not only the church with it's whitewashed walls and rich interior is nice here but also the big square in front of it and also the surrounding area with other interesting features. Also a nice place to enjoy some coconut water from the several kiosks available,
