Trip Planner: South America / Brazil / State of Rio Grande do Sul / Canela / Paroquia Nossa Senhora de Lourdes
Extremely photogenic Paroquia Nossa Senhora de Lourdes is one of Brazil’s finest examples of the English Gothic architectural style. This Cathedral of Stone, as its name literally translates from the Portuguese, features a tower rising 65 m (213 ft) into the air, and includes a carillon of 12 bronze bells imported all the way from Italy. The interior is decorated with painted canvases created by the gaucho artist Marciano Schmitz, who used three panels to depict the sacred "Apparition of Our Lady." Also included are several paintings by Uruguayan artist Pablo Herrera, noted for using wood and clay in his works. Try to time your visit for the evening hours, when the building becomes the centerpiece of a colorful light show. Put Paroquia Nossa Senhora de Lourdes and other Canela attractions into our Canela trip itinerary builder app, and watch your holiday take shape.

A wonderful church that tells the history of immigrants and all the people of the city of Canela's deep faith. It's a monument erected by the people to the greatness of our Lord.
