In the early years of the 18th century, there was a Spanish ship named the Candelaria that was caught in a very powerful storm. The Spanish sailors on board prayed to the Lord that if they were spared, they would build a new Iglesia (Igreja in Portugese, Church in English) at their final destination, Rio. They survived the storm, and kept their word by building a Church that they named Candelaria.

Pretty cool church. Open for people to look around, even let kids run and play up on the alter. Pretty chill. Some guy was sitting just outside the entrance playing some slow bluesy type songs on his harmonica, and the quiet sound reverberated throughout the church. Grab a seat and take a load off, check out all the cool architecture and paintings, and what's not to like about this church?
