Great spot for photos

It is a must seen when in Canela! It's a great spot for photos! The interior is not special nor interesting but it's worth the visit!

Beautiful cathedral in central part of canela. Probably one of the only things you can do without spending any money. Taking photos from outside.

It's a nice cathedral seen from the outside, kind of marks the landscape of Canela. But that's it, from the inside not much to see.

Part of our trip to Gramado was taking the touring bus that stops in 4 places at this cathedral. Very interesting building. Lots of nice litle shops and restaurants to have fun. Worth the visit.

A must go for those who like to see monuments. The church is very beautiful and in the streets nearby you can shop for wine, chocolate and more.

This is one of my favorite places to visit when I go to the mountains in Rio Grande do Sul state.This cathedral is simply majestic. Another great plus, is that around it you have tons of store and restaurants to go visit.
