Historical point

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)

The whole city is full of history! But it is nice to stop on spots as churches to value this kind of beauty

I loved loved loved the area and the beautiful and picturesque old town, recently flooded, but this little church was both boring and ordinary.

The story of this church is probably much more interesting than the building itself. According to legends, it was financed by the pirate treasure that was found dug somewhere on the shores.
