“One of the postcards of Caxias do Sul ”

Sao Pellegrino Church
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 23 November 2016 via mobile

The church of São Pelegrino is one of the postcards of Caxias do Sul . It is large space with all the wallls and ceiling with paintings of Aldo Locatelli. A masterpiece with angels and biblical scenes murals so real that seems in 3D.
The church was built in the beginning of 1950's is all covered with marble and has a tall tower with a clock. A parking behind it has plenty space for big tourists buses.
In the front a large stairway takes you to a big patio that has a flower clock in the rose garden. At the entrance there's a replica of Michelangelo's Pietá sent by Vaticano.
Free of charge, opens all the days.
Great to take pictures.

The church interior is covered with beautiful and colorful paintings of the talented Italian painter Aldo Locatelli. Especially the Last Supper and the impressive Via Crucis. There is a replica of the Pieta donated by the Vatican. The doors are bronze and tell the story of Italian immigration with great expressive force!

Nothing really special, but it is always a place to find peace....! People use to fill bottles and bottles of free water to drink.

Very well conserved church. The access is easy because it is located in Caxias downtown. I`d recommend two hours to visit it.
