While not unexpected in a country with many Catholics, this beachfront basilica is indeed worth a stop. The outside is a bit dark, with moss and humid weather conditioning, but the inside is somewhat impressive (not on an Italian scale though). There are six murals painted on the sides of the base of the arched ceiling (12 in total). Each has a beautiful Christian depiction (don't ask me what). The length of the chapel is impressive as well, at least half a block. When I visited (on a Friday) it appeared preparations were being made for a wedding (not many seemingly going to mass on a Friday or Saturday). Nonetheless a few (3) were praying in the front pews. I spent only 15-20 minutes, but it might be worth a few more. Enjoy if in Santos on the beach.

Nice church in a good shape. Seems very old and inspires a little pray. Very well located at the border of Boqueirão Beach.

One of the most beautifull church in front of the sea. It is very popular for weedings on the weekends, so plan your visit early on a saturday.
