  • It is worth visiting, it is distant 10 km from Caeté MG, and from Belo Horionte 40 km., it is the smallest basilica in the world, built by a Portuguese, which went to that region exploring the gold mining, then gave up and built the basilica on top of a ridge of more than 1300 MTS;. Height.

  • Climbing the Serra da Piedade to visit the sanctuary on its top is a wonderful experience. We went in the middle of the week, out of great movement and felt all the peace and tranquility that this place provides to the spirit. There are many sensations felt in a short time: the beautiful Church of Our Lady of piety inspires us faith and prayer at the feet of her image, the work of the Great master Aleijadinho. Calvary, in front of the beautiful Temple of the century. XVIII, is also magnificent. All the sights around the sanctuary unfold to a horizon of losing sight. The beautifully manicured gardens and squares are inspiring, especially the Jardim das Oliveira. The new Church of the Romarias with its imposing and modern architecture is another fascinating place. The whole structure of the souvenir shop, cafeteria, restaurant, parking, toilets is very well organized, cared for and clean. In the next opportunity we will try to stay at the Inn located in the sanctuary, the House of Pilgrims Dom Silvério, to have all the sensation of dusk and dawn in such a blessed place. Even because the center of Caeté, which is a charm, does not have a lodging structure to the height of this beautiful place. The tip is: visit Caeté and its tourist attractions and if you are staying more days, choose to be closer to God in the 1750 meters of the House of Pilgrims. Next time we'll do it this way. We strongly recommend this sanctuary with all the blessings of Our Lady of Mercy, the patron saint of Minas Gerais!
