This quaint little church was the first built in Brazil. Construction started in 1550, just 50 years after the discovery. A must visit in the area.

Was fortunate enough to be in Arrial de Ajuda for the pilgrimage of this lovely church. It is perched on the hill surrounded by a quaint shops. Do not forget to make a wish and the Senhora grants you a wish you need to go back and thank her.

Nice place to visit if you are walking in downtown of Arraia da Ajuda. You can enjoy a nice view of the beaches and P.Seguro in the back of the Church. There are many regional shops in the Square around the Church.
