Special Touristic Attractions

Tremembé

Religioso Rural Cultural

Religious tourism, pilgrimage and faith 

The word tremembé in Tupi language means good water for drinking but the town is famous for its religiousness. One of its main attractions is Senhor Bom Jesus basilica, an ancient chapel where the first mass was held in the town, in 1672. 

Religious stories are everywhere. There they say that the water at Água Santa spring comes from a tiny stream whose source is by the feet of Senhor Bom Jesus statue. 

In 1974, Pope Paul 6th granted Bom Jesus Shrine the title of Minor Basilica. This means a special bond of this temple with the Church of Rome, enabling it to use pontifical signs on its herald.
