A must see- one of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen. If you decide to go to mass on Sunday, get there early because it is standing room only. It is a very spiritual experience to see this Basilica overcapacity (more than 1,000...More

The basilica is a beautiful church. Unmissable place for visitors regardless of religion. It has an importance for the inhabitants of the city since it is part of the script of the biggest religious festival in the city “Cirio de Nossa Senhora de Nazare “

This is a beautiful place with a strong religious meaning, that speaks to the soul of the people in Belem. It is worth getting a guided tour to learn more about it.

This basilic is a piece of colonial art, with works on wood and gold dating form XVI century; building and decoration to be enjoyed at detail. Take your time, since you can walk around freely inside.

As far as religious buildings go, this one is well maintained and the artworks are intriguing. I'm don;t follow any religion so might be missing the finer details but I enjoyed it on a quick visit.

Not one of the oldest churches in town, but located on a nice square, with an impressive interior, that us bigger than anticipated and beautifully decorated without being ‘overdone’ as one often sees in catholic churches.

Very famous church in Belém. A must go because it is place of the biggest religious manifestation in Brazil, the Cirio de Nazaré. Beautiful building and the paintings inside are gorgeus.
