Description: The Candelaria Church ( Portuguese : Igreja Nossa Senhora da Candelaria ) is an important historical church in dowtown Rio de Janeiro , Brazil . It combines a Baroque facade with a Neoclassical and Neo Renaissance inner decoration . It is a Latin cross church with a dome over the transept . The main facade shows Baroque influences in the design of the windows , doors , and towers , as well as Neoclassical influences in the bi dimensionallity of the facade and the triangular pediment . The facade contrasts the dark granite of windows , columns and other elements with whitewashed wall segments , a typical characteristic of colonial churches in Rio . The nave has three aisles and a main chapel in the apse . The whole ensemble seems inspired by the church of the Convent of Mafra and in the Estrela Basilica of Lisbon , both in Portugal .
