Fodor's Expert Review Igreja da Nossa Senhora do Carmo

Mariana Religious Building/Site/Shrine Fodor's Choice

With works by noted artists Ataíde and Aleijadinho, Our Lady of Carmel Church is noteworthy for its impressive facade and sculpted soapstone designs. Ataíde is buried at the rear of the church, built in the late 1700s. A fire in 1999 during renovation nearly destroyed the site, sparing only the rococo-style altar.
