Notes on the Geography of Great Mirror: Photo 19
This is the much grander St. Paul's church, which similarly has a cylindrical vault over the nave but which hides it behind a Renaissance facade, similar to that of the Bom Jesus at Goa and, ultimately, Il Gesù in Rome. St. Paul's was begun in 1610, completed in 1612, and renovated in 1807. In the foreground is the elaborate church cross or cruzeiro. The attached building to the right, now a high school, was originally a Jesuit seminary.
