Parish Our Lady of the Conception

Cultural Heritage - Bom Jardim


The small church was built in the early 20th century and has a peculiarity in its Roman numeral clock: the number 4 is represented by IIII instead of IV. Despite sounding like a mistake, there were religious and aesthetic matters behind the exchange. In 2000, the church underwent a reform after which it gained its current appearance. The church features a tower that is 30 meters high and the image of Our Lady of the Conception, the patroness, at the altar. On the side walls, wooden images of the Via Cruscis are hung.
