Interior da Matriz de Nossa Senhora da Conceicao


It is the second oldest church in the state, behind St. Peter's Cathedral in Rio Grande, and one of the most quoted praised by former foreign travelers visiting these lands. In its surroundings there is nothing left from colonial times, the church remains as a unique relic, though splendid eighteenth-century architecture in the city.

The matrix is trace baroque colonial elements with rococo decoration, and its thick walls and imposing feature resembles a fortress, reflecting the period of border disputes between the Portuguese and Spanish territories in South America


Thank you to Luciano to send me this gorgeous postcard and stamps !!
