“Impressive alter”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

There are a lot of churches in this area and against the others this seems somewhat plain. That said, there are still some wonderful paintings and architecture and a silver alter to look at

“Nice surprise”
Reviewed August 17, 2011

This is a very nice surprise hidden in the heart of Rio. For many years I have heard about this place, where two Brazilian Emperors were coronate and one Brazilian princess got married, but I never had the opportunity to walk in. Beautiful, lots of history, lots of details on the architecture and decor. Definitely worth a visit, many “Cariocas” that pass by everyday probably do not know the historical importance of the building and that it is over 240 years old.
