There was a celebration going on while we were there so we got to watch locals do a processional out of the church into the streets. We went into the church afterwards and was surprised by it's color and feel. Worth a walk through.

I've no idea how you get to see this church as it's never open. Not even on Sundays. Pity as from the outside, it looks quite impressive.

Beautiful small Church in the heart of Paraty - not huge or particularly ornate but worth a visit, particularly as Paraty only has a few places to visit (as opposed to the shops, cafes, bars and restaurants)

Not much to do but nice to take a photo in front of the church. Don't know if they allow people to go inside as I didn't try to.

Amazing to see when tide comes in and floods streets. The surrounding area is so charming with all the bright colored boats.

This church is idyllically located by the water at Paraty. It provides some quiet and contemplation during a busy day of walking around the historic centre and going in and out of the numerous craft shops. Well worth a visit

Perfectly situated on the water front, this church is gorgeous... we were lucky enough to see it at sun-set and this shed some beautiful ligths on the church and the garden.

Escaping the hot dusty streets of the Centro Historico of Parati, you gravitate to the seafront. On the corner you can sit on the grass in the shade of a mature palm and enjoy the elegant composition that is the Igreja Nossa Senhora das Dores...More

If you find yourself in Paraty be sure to walk around to this small but beautiful church on the edge of the old town. It fits in perfectly with the post-colonial character of the town and its slightly faded charm.
