    Lovely mall and lots of little street stalls. Local products and prices. A good place to visit to see real Rio. The locals warn about thefts by passers-by. We felt safe.
    The church is the centre we found with shops for blocks around.

    St. Francis Xavier, as one of the first Jesuit priests and as an important missionary preacher in Asia (mainly in the Portuguese colonies of India, in Japan and Indonesia), has many devotees in Rio de Janeiro (as well as in many other Brazilian towns). On the Northern Zone of Rio de Janeiro, you may visit his beautiful church - "Paróquia São Francisco Xavier". Its construction was started in 1567 by the first Jesuit priests arrived in Brazil and has been restored and renovated along the centuries. Important relics (bone fragments) of St. Francis were donated to the church by Pope Pio XI in 1931 and an image of "Our Lady of Sorrows", brought from Italy by Brazil's last Empress, Dona Tereza Christina, was also donated by the Empress herself in 1880. Another highlight is the imposing baptismal font brought from France in 1627 - the oldest baptismal font still in use in Rio de Janeiro! Visiting this church is very very easy, as "Station São Francisco Xavier" on Rio's Subway Line 1 is just at its side! Enjoy!
