“Beautiful church”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

The church is famous and huge! It is full of colors and a very special place to go in Belém. It might be even better during the festivities of the Cirio de Nazaré.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Of course I am a bit biased....I was married here 15 years ago. One of the most stunning churches I have ever been to.

“Check out the Bronze doors!”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

This is a lovely Church, almost fully restored, with elaborate mosaics throughout. Many have unexpected modern touches - check out the triangle above the main entrance that includes images of natives as they were found in the 1500s, a pope, and a few guys in suits and ties (I guess the guys who paid for the restoration). The right front door panel has some sort of tribute to world war II soldiers, complete with a tank. Huh, go figure. Jarring but cool. The marble work in the interior is all real - no faux marble here, and the restored mosaics are colorful and lovely.

“Must see!”
Reviewed 1 November 2012

The Basilica besides being the shrine for Our Lady of Nazare, the object of one of the main catholic devotion in the world, is beautifully decorated, being an oasis of peace and faith in Belem.
