Monsteiro de Sao Bento
You're now walking next to the Sao Bento monastery.
This might not look incredibly impressive from the outside, but inside is another story. The place is just stunning. Unfortunately, photography is banned inside, so be aware of this if you wish to pause this tour to take a look around.
The building was completed in 1922, and nowadays is home to 45 monks. They're known for preparing delicious bread for tourists to purchase in the gift shop. The monastery is also where Pope Bento XVI stayed when he visited Brazil in May of 2007.
