Located near the city center, the sanctuary is very close to the Municipal Cemetery. The pilgrims go to an environment that combines ingredients such as peace, tranquility and spirituality. On the day of the saint, October 12, a procession is held up to the sanctuary. In the center of the sanctuary, surrounded by water, is suspended the image of the Patroness of Brazil, erected in a stylized boat. Just behind the saint is an immense painting by the tiles of the epic fishery that, centuries ago, resulted in the finding of the image of Nossa Senhora Aparecida. The space still has a cruise with area to light candles.
