The church is nice with a very nice altar, but we were expecting more decorations like other baroque churches of the same period. Still worth a visit though.

This church is beautifully poised in the center of the government square in the old part of Sao Luis. It's worth popping your head in and seeing the ornate and beautiful trimmings.

This is a pretty church on a nice colonial square in a relatively safe part of the city. Worth a look.

Very poor conditions and miss a lot not having someone to explain you the history of the building! As I am always talking here the trip to Sao luis Historical Area is good because is a HUGE place....but the conditions aren`t that good...they aren`t prepared for the tourists.

It's a decent church which is worth having a look at, but there's nothing amazingly special about it. It's kept in good condition though and does look very nice.
