Fodor's Review

Built by and for slaves between 1704 and 1796, the Igreja de Nossa Senhora do Rosário dos Pretos 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.
