Cathedral Sao Pedro de Alcantara is a neo-Gothic church named for both the patron saint of the Empire and the Emperor Dom Pedro II. Construction began in 1876, but the celebratory first Mass wasn't held until 1925. We found the Imperial Chapel inside the main doors to the right containing the remains of the Emperor Dom Pedro II, the Empress Dona Teresa, their daughter Princess Isabel, and her husband.
