  • What makes this church different from all the rest of the same colonial period is the fact that it is unfinished. And because it has been listed by IPHAN since 1937, it cannot be completed. Thus it can be observed in some parts, the stages of construction of the hoists of the retarpieces: The raw wood, with white and gold or painted background. The beginning of his work dates from 1729, replacing the old and small chapel existing on site. In its interior there is a profusion of details and has beautiful images like the Christ of the pardons, attributed to master Aleijadinho and that of St. Michael, attributed to Francisco Vieira Servas. The opulence of the retarpieces shows the dispute that existed among the sororities, especially between that of the Blessed Sacrament and that of Saint Michael and Souls. The paintings of the four Doctors of the church on the sides of the Arco-cruzeiro are attributed to master Ataíde. Church to see and review due to the enormous number of information placed on its walls and details. Its façade is quite original featuring the two Towers in Moorish form. The view of its churchyard is the postcard of Catas Altas: The imposing Serra do Caraça with the colonial houses and the large square leaning ahead.

  • Spectacular church, part of the altars with Polychrome, another part only with the white base and the rest only in the wood. The Altar of Saint Michael the Archangel is sumptuous, shows the power of the Brotherhood at the time, the Archangel touches the liner of the Nave. It's worth a visit.

  • We had a little trouble getting to know the church, masses hours are not advertised, each resident says a different, but Sunday morning we managed to know her from the inside.
