“a bad surprise”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Rather a religious spot, of minor, if any touristic relevance.
Not worth the time to get there.
Second Sunday of October, the place is filled with more than 1 million people who come from all over Brazil.
Make your hotel reservation well ahead of time as the hotels get fully packed during this time.

“Impressive archicteture”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

This is an historical building of impressive architecture. I just think that its facade should be restored. Specially during the day light we can see more the traces of the time destruction. However they way it is illuminated at night creates a magical atmosphere. It is worth visiting!

“A must, there's faith on it.”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

It's the biggest church of the town and it means a lot for all the locals as it beholds the image of the saint for all the devoted people.
