I was stunned by the sculptures of Aleijadinho in front of the church and also in the six chapels that depict key scenes of the Passion of Christ.
The church is interesting and worth a visit, but the sculptures are a "must" to better undertsand the evolution of Aleijadinho's style nera the end of his life

If you don't appreciate art it may be too much of a hike but aleijadinho's sculptures are a treat for anyone who appreciates these finer things. Take note that on Tuesdays the chapels are closed and thus you can only see the wooden figures through the bars of the door. One word about the state of conservation of the prophets: there are names scratched on the stone of people who thought a good idea to scar one of the treasures of Brazilian art. Really sad. The statues are also outdoors and fully exposed to the weather, maybe they should create a platform to protect them? We need them to last another 200 years!

Twelwe apostles sculpted by Baroque master Aleijadinho make this church a must for any art lover!
As usual in Brazil you have to pay to see the inside and a very strict ban is enforced on taking pictures. The stated reason: visitors help maintain this Unesco site. A plaque outside states that a complete restoration was conducted and paid for...

Amazing place. Fantastic energy and a spectacular view of the city of Congonhas. Take advantage and also discover a small museum hidden behind the Basilica, the museum of ex-votos and Santos de Casa, recognized as one of the most important in Brazil, which goes beyond the materialization of faith, and is configured as a historical, anthropological and artistic from the 17th to the 20th centuries
