  • The Chagas Church of The Serphico Pai São Francisco was inaugurated in 1787, from the expansion and renovation of a chapel built in 1676. The church is the only specimen built in mudpy mud remaining from 18th century architecture in the urban core of São Paulo. Inside, there are three altarpieces, one original from the church and the others, are remnants of other churches that have been demolished. The Altarpiece of St. Michael, presents an older Baroque and that of Our Lady of the Assumption, the Baroque Joanino. Finally, that of San Francisco, from the later period, Rococo. Another important fact is his relationship with the first saint of Brazil, Santo Antônio Sant'ana Galvão. He was the architect who designed the renovation that transformed the chapel into a church, including the church's dome, in octagonal format.
