Mosteiro São Bento information
Among the city’s oldest and most important churches, São Bento dates to 1598, though its neo-Gothic facade dates only to the early 20th century. Step inside the church to view its impressive stained glass. Masses (7am weekdays, 6am on Saturday and 10am Sunday) include Gregorian chanting.
There's a legendary, culturally-rich brunch of monk and top chef delicacies – including Prosecco! – on the second and last Sunday of each month – booking required well in advance (R$187 per person; reservations at email@example.com).
