Catedral Basilica Sao Luis Gonzaga

Reviewed By CCMedina - Dublin, Ireland

The Catedral Sao Luis Gonzaga can be easily visited in less than one hour. Access to the Cathedral is open and free of charge. Although it's in a busy area near the Cathedral.
Just beside the Cathedral there is a nice restaurant.
The Cathedral was renovated and freshly painted exteriors.
I walked up to the square. There is a Tourist Information Center.

The attraction need to be enjoyed for its Wilderness, not as a "park" There are small Waterfalls in the middle of woods. Plenty of paths to walk, wild monkeys, plenty of mosquitoes too.

Reviewed By CCMedina - Dublin, Ireland

I like this museum because it has a large variety of exhibits. Frederick Scheffel is a good painter. It could be nice a Coffee shop close the museum and also a souvenir shop. I didn't find any postcard from the city. The museum guide was very attentive. It costs € 2 to get in the museum. I recommend to take a look around the museum. There are many style German houses.

Hamburgo Velho

Reviewed By Ivan S - Dongguan, China

This should be one of the most carefully preserved place in Novo hamburgo since it was the place where first immigrants started the city.
However, this city has never had a good eyes to history and tourism.
An handful of local personalities tried their best to preserve and restore buildings there, but these have always been personal efforts, since I've never seen a strong public support for that.
To start, they should close traffic on that area, incentive cafeteria and restaurants there.

Basilica Sao Luis

Reviewed By Luis M - Novo Hamburgo, RS

This Cathedral is impressive. It is really big and has a twin majestic towers. At night those towers are very well iluminated, making a very nice picture.
Inside there are many paintings from Marciano Schmitz, a famous artist who was born in this town. Also other famous artist Aldo Locatelli has paintings there.

I Fashion Outlet

Reviewed By Omotayo F - Rio de Janeiro, RJ

Good place to spend the day and do some some shopping. Nothing extraordinary about the place, strikes me like any typical designers outlet you see in Europe structurally but way smaller in terms of size. The place is well looked after.
The prices here are quite reasonable compared to what we find in Rio. Transportation is a bit disappointing getting out of there, unless you have arranged with one to come back for you.

I like to visit the museum. It has a guide that explains about the place that was a warehouse colonized by Germans. The home has objects donated by residents of German descent. It's a great place to learn a little history of the city. It is free.
