Capela Dourada

The goldest of gold Baroque chapels, the Capela Dourada (Golden Chapel) is a real stunner and the highlight of ecclesiastical architecture in Old Recife. It's a miracle how well the superb gilding to the altar and crucifixes has been maintained for centuries in the humid climate of Brazil. Sit down and take your time to absorb the atmosphere, and don't miss the sacred art museum that is part of this Franciscan complex.
