With its imposing façade and baroque style, Nossa Senhora da Candelária or Igreja da Candelária in Praça Pio X is impossible to ignore. It took almost ninety years to build and was finally completed in 1898, and is Rio's largest church. Just as impressive, the interior is a colourful mixture of marble sculpted columns, altars and statues. Also, the dome features impressive paintings by João Zeferino da Costa depicting the Christian virtues.
