The ceilings, the altar,everything magnificently ornated, Portuguese tiles decorating the sides of the altar. It's unique in all Minas Grerais state. The church is in good condition, well restored.

Not only is the church a sight to visit but also the view from the church. The enterance is R$3 and they have English pamflets inside that explain the symbols of the decorations
