The church is up on the hill, so you need to walk up some stairs. The path is a bit muddy on the raining day, but not too slippery. The view from the top is not spectacular as its not that high up, but still...More

I love this church. It's beautiful from the outside and even more special inside. From the outside you get great views of the city. Brazils kings and queens were baptised here.

This church (not to be confused by the similar named one at Largo do Machado) is a small baroque gem with blue Portuguese tile in the interior which is otherwise rather plain, not gold laden like so many similar type churches in the colonial towns....More

A very nice old church just at the Largo Machado along Rua das Laranjeiras in Rio. The church is a beautiful building sitting at the side of the square. Worth visiting in conjunction with the square.
