Not one of the oldest churches in town, but located on a nice square, with an impressive interior, that us bigger than anticipated and beautifully decorated without being ‘overdone’ as one often sees in catholic churches.

Very famous church in Belém. A must go because it is place of the biggest religious manifestation in Brazil, the Cirio de Nazaré. Beautiful building and the paintings inside are gorgeus.

While in Belem, you need visit that place. There's a good and beautiful sidewalk and square in front of. The most important date it's Curio of Nazareth in October. The church it's very beautiful and rustic too, a quiet place sometimes and safe.

Decided to visit the Basilica. Walked there. Streets were busy and full of street food outlets. Basilica was beautiful and worth the walk. Free entry and not highly decorated as some. Lovely mosaics and decorations.
