Great and imponent place to be visited. The Cathedral was built in 1774.
Located in the city center, presents the same security hazards of any big city.

What I like about this cathedral is the wood work in the altar. It is really beautiful! It has been restored and looks great! It is really a work of art.

Large Cathedral with a lot of history

Impressive building. Mass was on and the choir sang. Church was not very full but an impressive building.

Outside a lot of homeless people were hanging around but did not bother you

The nicest church in town
Sep 2015 • Couples
Unfortunately when we arrived there, there was a lot of scaffolding arround the Cathedral, but stil its beauty was revealed. In spite of the renovation works it was still possible to enter, and so we were able to see the real warm and cosy interior.

Bright colors, large church, does not take long to see
Aug 2015
We came by metro and had to walk through side streets to reach the Cathedral. ON the whole Sao Paolo was a clean city but not this area. The plaza in front of the church was filled with homeless people and the liter of food containers, old clothes etc. In the center of the plaza is kilometer 0, where all roads are measured.There was a mass being led by the Cardinal that had the church filled with participants

Beautiful!

Even as an atheist, I've always loved going to churches and seeing their architecture. It's one of the oldest churches of Campinas, and its bell rings every single hour. You can hear it when you're passing by, it's beautiful.

Beatiful Inside

Not very impressive from the outer side, but offers beautiful woodwork art to appreciate inside. Very mystical feeling.

Magnificent wood work
Nov 2014 • Couples
This cathedral is a thing of beauty inside. You find the most wonderful wood carvings and sculptures made of "Jacaranda Wood". This is the tree or bush that you see with those beautiful blue (purple) flowers everywhere in South America. We were unlucky there was a mass in progress so we could not admire as we would have liked to. They say it was built in the 19th century in a technique called "taipa de pilas" meaning using clay and rocks. The outside was in restoration therefore covered up so we could not admire it. Go visit when in Campinas it is definitely worth it!

Beautiful church
Beautiful church with excellent wood work. Today when I went some renovation was in progress and they have covered the entrance and tower. Hence not able to see the front view.
