Igreja Nosso Senhor do Bonfim, Pirenopolis

#10 of 34 in Historic Sites in State of Goias
Church · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Recent renovations revealed beautiful paintings adorning the walls and ceiling of this small 18th century church, and you can see them in all their former glory thanks to extensive restoration work. Sitting high on a hill in the heart of Pirenópolis, Igreja Nosso Senhor do Bonfim is an excellent example of colonial architecture, and the two bell towers are home to four of the oldest bells in Goiás. The largest of its three altars has an intricate carving of the crucifixion, which locals look to for blessings before embarking on long journeys.
