  • I made a guided tour that allowed to know details of the history and architecture of the monastery. It is of a unique beauty with details that make this site a mandatory visit for tourists and Cariocas. Still on Sundays a beautiful mass with Gregorian chants toast the visitors. Highlight the panoramic terrace at the back of the monastery.

  • When we reached the place it looked unimpressive from the outside but once we went in, it was simply wonderful. The artwork was out of the world.  more »

  • Beautiful church, stunning carvings & gold everywhere you would not know from the outside how beautiful this church is.
  • Very nice, baroque art and detail in this church. Very interesting stories about how the church would open its doors to those of other countries but feared the pirates would ransack the church of its gold so there closed the doors and added wrought iron bars to the windows.
