Capela de Sao Pedro, Fernando de Noronha

See the vast expanse of water below Capela de Sao Pedro, a cliff top chapel at the foot of a mountain. Tiny, simple, and isolated on the top of a hill overlooking the ocean, this no-frills church has a large cross erected next to it and offers superb views of the sea. Built in the 1930s by the French, the structure includes carved wooden entrance doors and a bell in the front facade. Due to the scenery, many opt to have their wedding here. On Saint Peter's Day (July 29), a procession from the nearby town comes to the top of the hill for an outdoor mass celebrating the protector of fishermen.

  • For a change, the look is really cool. We just couldn't get into the chapel because a wedding was underway and what my surprise was when I found out that the place is very crowded by couples from all over Brazil to perform the matrimonio there...

  • The chapel was being painted, but from there you can have a very beautiful view. The parade was very profitable to take beautiful pictures.
