Igreja de Nossa, Rio de Janeiro: 6 reviews and 9 photos
This church was started in 1716 but the facade (which I didn't get a picture of) was finished some 100 years later. This is where Dom Pedro I married Princess Leopoldina of Habsburg. It became the Imperial Chapel with Brazil's independence in 1822. The church holds the remains of Pedro Alvares Cabral, the discoverer of Brazil (the tombstone is on the aisle, near the sacristy).
Address: Rua 1o de Marco
Directions: About 300m south of NS de Candelaria.
