With religious spirit he wanted to leave here his mark of faithful devoted to the Portuguese saint. In this place was built a small chapel with a view to the existence of gold and the proximity of the port of the Cuiabá River. In it was placed the image of São Gonçalo that measures 1, 45m height all carved in wood from the city of Amarante, Portugal, the land where São Gonçalo was born and lived.
