Church in Paraty

Built in 1787 on the site of two previous 17th-century churches, this 'mother' church on Paraty's main square legendarily got financing for its construction from pirate treasure found hidden on Praia da Trindade. Opening times are extremely variable; ask at the tourist office for current hours, or go by the church directly to see if it's open.
