Photographer's Note

Santa Rita Church

Its construction dates back to the 18th century, without a precise date, undergoing successive renovations in the 19th century that characterized its current beveled facade. Inside, the simplicity of the marbled ornamentation and the So Sebastio wing made by order of Ensign ngelo Martins de Siqueira, father of the legendary Ana D'frica, stand out. The church is located at the top of a long staircase from where you can see the Pico do Itamb, with its 2044 meters of altitude, and a panoramic view of the historic center of Serro.
