Igreja Nossa Senhora das Mercês (Our Lady of Mercy Church)

Fodor's Review

Another of Belém's baroque creations, this church is notable for its pink color and convex facade. The shell dates from the 17th century, and the rest attributed to Antônio Landi's restoration. It's part of a complex that includes the Convento dos Mercedários, which has served both as a convent and a prison, though not simultaneously.
