The Pilgrimage to Aparecida

Posted by admin on

 

In the Brazilian state of Sao Paulo, you’ll find the fertile valley of Paraibo do Sul. And within Paraibo do Sul is a municipality called Aparecida -a pretty popular place of pilgrimage. If you’re in Brazil and have nothing left to do, consider visiting this place.

 

Over 6 million pilgrims visit Aparecida annually to pay their respects to Our Lady of Aparecida, a local patron enshrined in the Basilica bearing the same name. For Brazilians, it is a hallowed ground treated with respect. Please do the same whilst inside the Basilica. Not the kind of travel destination you’re looking for?
