Catedral de São Pedro dos Clérigos Review

The facade of this cathedral, which was built in 1728, showcases fine wooden sculptures and a splendid trompe-l'oeil ceiling. The square surrounding the cathedral is lined with many restaurants, shops, and bars, and is a hangout for local artists, who often read their poetry or perform music, particularly on Tuesday evenings.

    Catedral de São Pedro dos Clérigos Review

    What sets São Pedro dos Clérigos apart is its unique architectural style, not quite fitting into the ubiquitous late barroque that spread all over colonial Brazil.
