BOM JESUS DE MATOSINHOS CHURCH - BRAZIL


The church of Bom Jesus de Matosinhos is located in Congonhas (Minas Gerais), a rather ugly, modern town 72km south of Belo Horizonte, which sits ill as one of the historic cities. Built on a hill overlooking the town, with a panoramic view of the hills around it, the Basílica do Senhor Bom Jesus de Matosinhos is set in a magnificent sloping garden studded with palms and what look like six tiny mosques with oriental domes.
