Santa Luzia Church

Learn about the history of this pretty church and note the features of its interior, including crystal chandeliers and religious images.

Santa Luzia Church is a whitewashed colonial gem in the historic center of Angra dos Reis. Dating back to the 17th century, the religious structure has an intriguing history, entwined with the initial settlement here by the Franciscans. Admire the Baroque and Rococo touches of this impressive church. 

Appreciate the elegant architecture of the structure and the contrasting frames of the windows and doors. A striking pediment hoists a cross and a side steeple contains two bells. Enter via the large green door to find yourself in the single tall-ceilinged nave. 

The interior is known for the statues and carvings adorning its walls. Inspect the impressive main altarpiece, which dates back to the mid 1800s. Admire the crystal chandeliers that hang from the ceiling and examine the Baroque image of the church’s patron saint, Santa Luzia. 

Sit at a pew and enjoy the serene ambiance in this religious structure, whose shelter offers cool relief from the afternoon heat of Angra dos Reis. View the framed photos and drawings alongside crosses and religious symbols decorating the white interior walls.

The church itself has been the principal place of worship in Angra dos Reis for centuries. It served as the home of the Franciscans, until the completion of the San Bernardino de Sena Convent on a nearby hill. Attend Mass here and chat with the friendly locals. Enter the church for free during other daylight hours throughout the week. Occasionally, events and celebrations are also held near the church.

Find Santa Luzia Church in the heart of the town of Angra dos Reis. It is a 5-minute walk northwest from its namesake boat station on the main pier. Make sure to visit nearby attractions, including the Câmara Municipal de Angra dos Reis, Zumbi dos Palmares Square and Port Square.
