Beautiful Gothic Cathedral

It's an impressive church. Beautiful during the day and gorgeous lit up at night too. Easy to get to square surrounded by cite gift, coffee and chocolate shops.

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.

There is a place that you will spend 20 min at maximum and will enjoy. I prefer to visite this place at morning, but at the evening is also fantastic.

A new take on the Gothic arch, with 1950s crazy paving. You`ve seen feature walls like this in domestic settings - freestone, irregularly set - perhaps as a feature wall or fireplace. Impressive from a distance. Visitors think so too - there was a steady stream of sight-seers, and some of the faithful sat in pews and took a moment... More

I can't add much as other reviewers have described it well. I didn't have the opportunity to view at night. Was told when lighted, really beautiful.
