Enjoy a tour inside the amazing temple of Saint Julia in Campos.
The church construction you see today, is actually the third of its kind on the very location. The very first church in Campos, was built back in 1248, where it was nothing but a moderate chapel.
The church was inaugurated in 1873, after many years of postponement of the project. However, the amazing bell tower, was actually built between 1584 and 1597, because at that time, it functioned as a watchtower, the first of its kind in Campos. On top of the bell tower, you see a sculptor of the patron saint of Campos, Saint Julia.
The church carries an architectural style of neoclassicism. However, it is inside of the church you shall find the most impressive features of this church. When stepping inside, at a glance you notice the detailed decorated coffed ceiling., which is quite rare and unique.
