  • The Church of St. Benedict, as the Cuiaban refers is the only church in the capital Matogrossense that continues with the original features. It has undergone maintenance reforms, but despite the legends of having gold buried in its walls, they did not get down as it was done with the cathedral in the center of the city. This church has a beautiful interior with many gold-plated baroque images and wooden altars.
