  • A beautiful church. Built by the congregation of Redemptorists, it is one of the most remarkable monuments built in Belo Horizonte. We arrived at the time of the mass and we could contemplate the beauty of this architecture in the center of Belo Horizonte.

  • Beautiful Catholic Church in the center of Belo Horizonte. Built from 1902, in the form of a Latin cross. Recently restored, it has received strong original colors, showing rich symbology.
