The church is more beautiful outside than inside. Really nice construction but very plain inside, specially comparing to the churches in Tiradentes.

Quite a large solemn structure that dominates the main square Opened in mid 19th centuary but with uncompeted tours so looks more like a town hall Inside everything you would expect of a cayholic church

This church used to be for the slaves. No exactly slaves but those who was free or reached it. It's a simple church but a historical one.

More of a museum than a church now (although still used as a church) but worth a visit, particularly as Paraty only has a few places to visit (as opposed to the shops, cafes, bars and restaurants)
