São Paulo Metropolitan Cathedral, also known as "Sé Church", is situated in the very heart of the city, close to the place where it was born, in 1554. Its construction started in 1913 and finished in 2002, when its original neogothical project, by German architect Maximilian Emil Hehl, was finally concluded. However, it was inaugurated in 1954, still without its towers. In the same place, in 1551, it was established the city's first Parish, known as the "Old Sé", demolished in 1911.

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.
