History of this Location

Igreja Matriz Nossa Senhora dos Remédios is the largest church in Paraty. It takes up an entire city block. Its construction began in 1646 when Maria Jácome de Melo donated the land that was to become the village of Paraty. However, in donating the land, Maria put forth two conditions: the building of a chapel dedicated to Nossa Senhora dos Remédios and that no one would harm the Indians that lived in the area. The church was completed in 1873. The rear of the structure was never finished due to a lack of funding. Within the sanctuary the images of Nossa Senhora dos Remédios, São José Arcanjo, and Senhor dos Passos can be seen.
