The church interior is covered with beautiful and colorful paintings of the talented Italian painter Aldo Locatelli. Especially the Last Supper and the impressive Via Crucis. There is a replica of the Pieta donated by the Vatican. The doors are bronze and tell the story of Italian immigration with great expressive force!

Very well conserved church. The access is easy because it is located in Caxias downtown. I`d recommend two hours to visit it.

Beautiful church, located between the Teatro San Carlos and San Pelegrino Shopping. Has ceiling paintings made by Aldo Locatelli, Italian painter. Very much worth a visit for history!

It is for sure a great art work to look at. Outside you don't realize how beautiful is inside. But once you got in you see Italian marble and European style inspired work. Worth to stop!

On the outside it doesn´t look like much but once you´ve gone in the artwork on the ceiling and on the walls are breathtaking.
