Igreja de Nossa Senhora do Rosário dos Pretos

Igreja de Nossa Senhora do Rosário dos Pretos Review

Built by and for slaves between 1704 and 1796, the Church of Our Lady of the Rosary has finally won acclaim outside the local Afro-Brazilian community. After extensive renovation, it's worth a look at the side altars to see statues of the church's few black saints. African rhythms pervade the services and the Sunday mass is one not to miss.
