- This beautiful baroque church was built in 1714, and has a peculiar figure-of-eight shaped nave and choir. Dom Pedro II was married here and his daughter, Princesa Isabel, was baptized here also. The main features are the ornate tiles and the altar carved by Mestre Valentim. If you happen to be in Rio on August 15, you can join the festa of Nossa Senhora da Glória do Outeiro, where you will get a taste of Brazilian religious celebrations. There is a small sacred art museum as well.
