One of the oldest Churches in Rio, the Sao Bento Mosteiro was completed in 1641, and the front facade was added in 1669. The Benedictines who built this wonderful Church were one of the first to settle in Rio. While the exterior is almost non-descript, the inside of the Church is fantastico! They don't allow picture taking with flash or otherwise in the Church, but trust me, you shan't forget the experience.
