Capela de São João Batista (St. John the Baptist Church)

Capela de São João Batista (St. John the Baptist Church) Review

Prodigious architect Antônio Landi finished this small octagonal church in 1777. It was completely restored in the late 1996 and is considered the city's purest example of baroque architecture and the country's first octagonal church.
