Photographer's Note

Nocturne view of St. Benedict's Church. The temple was founded in 1886 by Friar Serafim of Catania, a Italian Franciscan, and was built with community donations, after twelve years of building work. The frontal square of this temple is often used as a stage for open-air concerts. The fundamental stone of Saint Benedict’s Church was laid in 1874, but the building was only finished in 1886. Built in tuscan style, it has a high arched nave and two chapels. Its frontispiece is made of two towers and a central oratory, with a statue of Saint Benedict in life size. Its doors, made of rosewood and cedar by the local artist Sebastiγo Mendes, are protected by Brazilian National Historical Heritage Authority, with floral motifs.
