  • Great church, very large and with great masses! I've already taken a baptism course, and even the administrative part, everyone treats you with a lot of respect. For those who go by car, I suggest you arrive early so you can park closer to the church and not walk so much.

  • The parish of São Gonçalo do Porto was inaugurated on November 15, 1781 when Jose Carlos Pereira de Souza, a Baiano from Cachoeira returned to Lisbon for another mission. 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. In 1894 the Salesian Fathers began the construction of the present temple. The clock of the church is 1842 and on the façade of the temple, before the tower, we find the images of the four apostles: Luke, Matthew, Mark and John and at the top of the tower is the image of Christ the Redeemer, on a globe, symbolizing the world and measuring 2.40 meters. As written she came from Italy. Within the church are several secular images; One of them is the image of Our Lady of conception, on an altar to the left of those who enter, of Paraguayan origin is the protector of the first brotherhood of ladies and young people of Cuiabá and here this 123 years ago.
