  • One of the most fascinating places of my travels. A lot of devotion. Great and Beautiful. Too amazing, worth every second here

  • I was very well impressed with this place. The entire structure assembled to serve customers is exemplary. I particularly know Fatima and the Vatican, and in neither, I've seen a service as good as in Aparecida. The location is well signposted, with clear information. Super clean, with attentive, educated and well trained staff. The hygiene of the restaurant is excellent. The Basilica conveys a unique tranquility. Being very clear, with light paintings, it makes the environment more relaxed, transmitting a lot of peace. Its architecture is differentiated and the fact that it was built in stages, with very well planned expansions, made the whole complex well integrated. Super recommend to every Brazilian to pay a visit and, like me, can be proud to have a national heritage of this level. Oh, and I also suggest you visit the original Cathedral (old).

  • The National Sanctuary of Our Lady of Aparecida Is said to be the 2nd largest basilica in the world, after The Vatican. It's a very modern cathedral and, indeed, it IS huge. I was most impressed by the quality of music sung by the talented priests who are posted at this Shrine.
  • A wonder of the Catholic world, this Shrine competes in size with the national shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington DC, but the cross shaped building around the tiny image of Our Lady of Aparecida is far more imposing. The complex includes several chapels, dining areas, nearby restaurants, hundreds of religious shops and, very Brazilian style, the largest parking lot in the world
