We enjoyed visiting this little church in the middle of town. It was unexpected. A religious momento shop inside , very extensive collection of religious items. Very simple church.

Strikingly simple yet beautifully maintained, this small Catholic church sits on a rise in the middle of Centro and is well worth a look. It has, in our opinion, one of the best gift shops for religious mementoes if you are of that faith or...More

Pretty little church in Ilhabela. Was not particularly looking for it, though once found a quick entry and a prayer was necessary.

This small but very pretty church has your typical colonial Portuguese architecture with a Brazilian twist and it is situated in the prettiest and most historical area of Ilhabela

The church is located downtown and is beautiful. A landmark on the island for sure. It's easy to access and the cemetery is nearby also.

This church was beautiful. They had beautiful old statues and paintings, and the Jesus sculpture out front was unbelievable.

This little church, has its own crucifixion statue in the square in front. It stands out from other buildings and is worth a quick look inside

The foundations of this simple, yet beautiful, Church were laid within the first century of Portuguese settlement of Brazil so its historic roots now span more than 400 years. Not that you'd know that from the design: there is a near-complete absence of ornamentation inside,...More

This is a beautiful little church that is very worthwhile visiting. It has a beautiful internal decor and the view from the entrance towards the channel is spectacular!

As I recall, this church is not as impressive as some I have seen. Coming out of the front entrance you are confronted by lots of stairs to the street level. I had to hang on to someone so that I would feel more secure...More
