I was on the way to the main street, and this church looked so beautiful with night sky. Located in just next to the 'Amazon Theater', it made me feel like I'm in an European country.

Waiting for the guided tour of the Teatro Amazonas, we visited Saint Sebastian church that is located on the same main square of Manaus. Beautiful and originally decorated interior.
