This is one of the most beautiful and old churches in Brazil's Northeast and my favorite in Paraíba. I always visit and love the place when it comes to weddings and other social events. The museum is a must see in the old town area.

A must-do. Not in the best part of town, but it's very old and well-preserved and larger than it looks like from the outside. The frescoes are lovely as are the views of wilderness from outside some of the windows. Weddings here... very, very hot...More

See lions of stone that protect the Atrium, the big doors of entrance made of worked wood. Feel amazed with the painting on the ceiling front face in the central nave. Know a lot of tipical art of Northeast Region of Brazil.
