This is probably the postcard of Paraty known by most people!!!

The Church of Santa Rita was built in 1722 by the freed mestizos near the harbour. It combines barroque and rococo styles, being its simplicity probably the most beautiful thing about it.

The Museum of Sacred Art (Museu de Arte Sacra) works inside this church and it´s opened for visitors from Wednesday to Sunday, from 9AM until 12AM and from 1PM until 6PM. Admission costs R$1,00.

Directions: Largo de Santa Rita, near the harbour.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
