Probably the biggest sight of all there is to do in Paraty, the church is free to visit and allows photography. The inside is adorned with white, blue and gold paper roses, which makes it an unusual place of worship. Well worth stopping to discover.

The heart of Historical Paraty . Very near the sea and the small port where you can rent a boot to go around the many beachs . Around the Church , a few good places to have dinner .

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
