Who pays more attention to the landscape of downtown Gramado, see, up on the hill, the Brazilian Evangelical Church of Lutheran Confession, better known as Igreja do Relógio. At the top of its tower is the clock that does justice to the nickname, from 1964. The bells, cast in 1826 in Germany, are one of the the attractions.

The church is one of the postcards of the city, especially in the months from November to February, when they the hydrangeas bloom, which form a huge bouquet around the temple. It is a kind of gift for visitors that seek peace. From up there, you have a privileged view of the city.

The decor is nice and simple. The stained glass that beautify and brighten the interior have meanings explained at the entrance of the church, where there is also an explanation of the Lutheran religion. Inaugurated in February 1961, the church was dedicated to Paul the Apostle, follower of Jesus Christ.
