This is the Parish Church of Santo Antônio (XVIII Century), in Tiradentes, one of the most beautiful historical cities of Minas Gerais State. It is a Minas Baroque jewel, important for its entranceway and large doors, designed by Aleijadinho (Antônio Francisco Lisboa, Brazilian most important sculptor), and for its altar, a golden extravaganza.
Although situated very close to the place where Rio de Janeiro was founded, in 1565, Urca is a young District, built in a reclaimed land area, at the foot of Sugar Loaf Mountain, in the first decades of the XX Century. Once known for its famous Casino, Urca remains as an amazing and exclusive neighbourhood, one of the best in town. The photo was taken from Urca Hill.
The elegant profile of "Santa Luzia" Church, a Portuguese colonial architecture's jewel (1752), in Downtown Rio de Janeiro, contrasts with it's modern neighbours.
