What I like the most was the vitals in the walls of the church. The church is located in the center of the city with great dining areas surrounding it. This is a historic place that one must visit in Gramado.

Fine and almost imposing from the outside, this typical stone built church from southern Brazil is simple but well kept inside. Less grandiose than its counterpart in Canela, it depicts some nice vitraux. Worth going.

Everyone talked about this church but to be honest I found it super average. The statues on the outside are kind of nice, but I guess I expected more. It is right in the middle of everything so going there is not inconvenient, so it is worth it.

Churches and temples are always a interesting place to visit and feel good vibrations and energy. This one is in downtown, is not the biggest I have seen but it's beautiful. And it's very close to go.

Unfortunately the weather was very cold and it rained when I was there but it is a nice place in the city's main avenue.

Nice place in the center of the city for a quick stop. Take some pictures outdoors and don't forget to visit the fountain to the right of the church.

Located in the downtown area, it is worth a visit. Gothic style, quiet, spacious and with the name below each saint displayed, which helps a lot those who are not very familiar with all of them.

There is instalation of apostoles outside and it looks stunning even at night! The ground in front of the church has been turned into mosaic glass for this Xmas season. It looks really impressive, never seen anything like that. A fountain of eternal love is just on the right of the church and it's pretty cute too.

When looking at this church, which is interesting in its stone structure and walls, one asks: what is the function of this temple, a place to thank God or a point to attract customers to the different stores and restaurants the are located around it?? The interior of the temple with its careful woodwork (put your attention up at the... More
