We visited Parintins on a Sunday so many of the local shops were closed. We had time to spend in town while we were waiting for the Boi Na Bomba show in the afternoon. We walked all over town which is easy since the town is not very large. A few people rented the little three wheel bike taxis to... More

As befits this city this Cathedral is definitely the largest structure you'll see as you dock. From a distance another church complex is a little closer to town, but everything in Parintins is relative. The Cathedral is both the largest and the most modern building in the city and is simplicity itself inside with minimal statuary and even a completely... More

This is a sleepy, rather flyblown place on the banks of the Amazon, with not a lot going on, which is actually part of its charm, since it makes no concessions to tourists so you get to see the real Amazonia. However, the Cathedral is worth a visit. Open on a number of sides to encourage a cooling draft it... More

His cathedral as built the early sixties and as such doesn't really have much of archectural significience. It is covered in tiles that resume bricks and is quite nice inside without being spectacular. It gives the appearance of a functional church. There is not much else to see in Parintins, so it is worth the time to walk here.

A lovely simple church and well worth a visit. The stone work is well done. No air conditioning so always very hot inside. There is a bright cheerful cemetery just behind the cathedral.

It's a somewhat modern building, interesting for the cavernous interior. There's not a lot of sites in this town, so this seems to be on everyone's list.

Not much more to see in this town, so this church becomes "a must" Don't miss the Christian cemetery in the back AND the separate Jewish cemetery. If it's closed, ask for the key from the guardsman in the Christian part.(I climbed the fence... illegally, I'm sure)

at this time the cathedral was undergoing a renovation, so this year will be interesting to see the work that has been finished.

This simple structure is a welcoming church. It is under stated and provides a delightful refuge in this remote Amazonian town.
