Note: Religious content – This following post shows the inside of a Roman Catholic Church from the XIX century, if you don’t want to see the photos please skip it. Turning site previews off temporarily could also be a good ideia. Sorry for the inconvinience.
I found it hard to translate the name of the Saints to English and unfortunately I don’t know anyone with such specific knowledge so I did my best to add understandable notes, thank you for your comprehension.
As mentioned in the “trindade and aliados” post, the Trindade Church was built during the XIX century in neoclassical fashion following the design of the architect Carlos Amarante. The interior has the shape of a cross, the Main Altar in front of the main entrance and there’s one secondary Altar on each side: right and left. On the wide corridor towards the main Altar and before the crossing there are 3 smaller chapels on the walls of each side. view photo
