Capela Nossa Senhora das Dores, Paraty

4.2
#4 of 13 in Historic Sites in Paraty
You will find Paraty’s youngest church overlooking the Baía de Paraty, its rustic, white façade asymmetrical due to a planned second tower never being built; atop the existing tower, you will see a cockerel-shaped weathervane. Despite major renovations at the turn of the 19th century, the interior of Capela Nossa Senhora das Dores is simple, but you can see intricate, hand-carved woodwork on the balconies and choir partition. In the inner courtyard, you will find a columbarium-style cemetery, where the funeral urns of the town’s deceased are housed in small compartments.
