Culture of Balneario Camboriu. Places to visit - old town, temples, theaters, museums and palaces

Balneario Camboriu is one of the youngest cities in Brazil, so it cannot boast of a variety of historic streets and attractions. Nevertheless, you can find several old houses that were built here during the existence of small colonial towns. A very interesting historical building is the Capela de Santo Amaro erected in 1810. Recently, it was recognized as a historical monument of national importance. One of the main features of the church is its unique architecture.

It was built of stones that were mined in local quarries. Interestingly, whale oil served as the main binding material during its construction. The surprising thing is that the chapel has remained intact for over 200 years and has not undergone any major reconstruction. The old chapel stands in the picturesque district of Bairro-da-Barra, one of the oldest in the city. It was here that one of the first large settlements was founded in the 18th century. Hundreds of years ago, there was a large pier for fishing boats not far from the church.
Another interesting city attraction is the Cristo Luz (Christ Light) statue that was installed on the top of the hill Morro da Cruz in 1997. It looks pretty much like the legendary statue of Christ in Rio. Climbing to the top of the hill is a very popular activity among tourists. Here, they can not only admire the huge statue up close but also enjoy the stunning panorama of the city. At night time, the 33-meter statue is decorated with beautiful artistic illumination.

Modern churches that have been built in the city over the past decades are of equally great interest as architectural monuments. Igreja de Santa Inês is a very unusual church that occupies a large building crowned with an original umbrella-like roof. This makes the church look a bit like oriental religious monuments. The roof looks just as impressive from the inside as from the outside. Igreja de Santa Inês has a spacious round hall that has been used for holding various cultural and social events since its opening.
If you feel like the city's sights are not enough, go explore its picturesque surroundings.

The interior of the cathedral is fabulously beautiful too. Its walls and ceiling are decorated with artistic murals depicting scenes from the life of Christ. The cathedral features precious wood finishing and traditional massive wooden furniture in its hall. It is worth noting the skillful stained glass windows, which are especially admirable on a sunny day. The religious monument looks attractive both during the day and at night when it is spectacularly illuminated.
In front of the cathedral, you can see a beautiful square with fountains, decorative pools, and landscape decorations. Nearby is the small Capela Santa Terezinha, which is another important historical monument of the region. A narrow stone staircase leads to its entrance.
