Catedral Sao Paulo Apostolo - Igreja Matriz is very different from traditional churches, exhibiting more modern architecture. Opened in 1958 and designed by Gottfried Boehm, the church has a tower 45 meters (148 feet) high and three electronic bells. It was built with stones of red granite and stained glass windows that produce a brilliant light and colors. At the entrance, you will be greeted by a cedar carving depicting Our Lady, Christ Crucified, San Jose, and the Paschal Lamb. Symbolically, they represent family, forgiveness, community, and sacrifice. Once inside, two rows of white pillars on either side welcome you to rest and reflect.

  • The result of the mobilization of a whole city in the decades of 50 and 60, regardless of religion. It's part of my personal story.

  • Located right in the center of Blumenau, the cathedral Sao Paulo apostle is imposing, light in color, with a modern architecture and an interior decoration different from other churches or cathedrals. It has a large parking lot. On Sundays the mass of the 9 hours, known as the children's mass, is crowded.
