It was erected in 1800 on the initiative of ladies of the aristocracy of the city. With the decline of the city, the church was abandoned until 1901, when the Brotherhood of Our Lady of Sorrows, composed exclusively of women, reformed the chapel.
Is now known as "Chapel of Sorrows" or simply "Chapel".
Designed to have two towers, only one was completed, where on the top is there a rooster, a wind direction indicator.

I love the character these churches have when they were never fully complete, and that shows through really well in this capture. A beautiful church, I love the effect of what building on blue sky like this, and the palm tree gives great depth. Lovely place, thanks for sharing.

nice the view of the old church with its white colour to contrast perfect with the blue of the sky.I like its beautiful architectural style as the good presentation.

Linda esta igreja pela singeleza e pelas cores. Tenho um registro dela porém diferente. Você conseguiu um belo céu dando um contraste bem bonito com as cores dela.

Bonjour mon cher ami,
quels bleus !!
Une intensité rare qui rend ces blancs tellement immaculés, tellement purs. Une exposition parfaite et le filtre polarisant a vraiment bien joué son rôle.
Un cadrage "carte postal" très réussi.

Mais uma bonita foto de Paraty! Gosto da igrejita branca e casinhas coloniais ladeadas de palmeiras. O céu estava muito bonito nesse dia. Bonitas cores!
