Smack dab in the middle of Blumenau, only a stone's throw away from the River Itajai, this church is punctuated by a large brick tower which has long been one of the city's symbols.

Beautiful modern cathedral, very pleasant ambient, spacious, attended mass - they have quite a few times during the day, enough space for a few hundred to sit.

This Catholic church is occupies a clean, modern building placed on a high area in Blumenau historic district. A large portion of its walls is covered by glass panels, which ensure that the clean interiors are always full of light during day time.

Very popular and busy cathedral. We heard loud singing and saw animated worshipping one night, quite impressive. Massive stained glass windows. Nice modern architecture. Worth a visit

It's a beautiful church and worth the climb if you are downtown on your way to the Havan Building. Its modern architecture outstands, don't expect to find anything German here. Inside it's peaceful if you are looking for a respite from the bustling downtown.
