There are many archaeological buildings in Rio de Janeiro. Many of them were built by foreigners in Brazil. They are full of exotic styles and characteristics. This monastery is quite interesting. You can see a lot of hot art structures here. The environment is very quiet, free to visit.
[Scenery] The scenery is beautiful
[Interest] Very interesting
The San Benedict Monastery in Rio de Janeiro is a historic monastery. It is located on the hill of Saint Benedict and is one of the most artistically valuable monasteries left over from the colonial period. The interior decoration and carvings of the church are very gorgeous, showing a gilded Baroque style, which is the work of many masters in Brazil, which is very shocking.
The building is beautiful, and the inner courtyard is full of Arabic style. Because it is a university, this inner courtyard is not open. I watched and took photos from the window in the place where the university students are studying. The university students stood up and asked me to disturb them. After leaving. Worth seeing!
The appearance of the white exterior building is quite ordinary. But after entering, it is a different sight. The large-scale reliefs extend from the wall to the ceiling. The squares on the dome are decorated with circular decorations and gorgeous chandeliers. They extend from the arched second-story wooden railings. The gorgeous flower patterns even open the door from you. Can experience
It was built during the Portuguese colonial period, and the buildings full of European artistic landscape made me feel that this place is very sacred. There are many beautiful sculptures in the lobby of the monastery, exquisite and beautiful.
