São Jorge Day

São Jorge Day

St. George is the patron saint "unofficial" in Rio de Janeiro, because it is a phenomenon in the local culture.


His devotees are counted in thousands, and April 23, St. George's Day, everyone pays tribute to the "Holy Warrior", achieving an authentic expression of faith. This ritual starts at dawn, where fireworks are launched in different parts of the city, followed by the traditional Mass in the Parish Church of St. George in Quintino.


Enjoy a unique cultural event in Rio de Janeiro with the best daily price.

The dragon (the devil) symbolizes idolatry destroyed by the weapons of Faith. Since the maiden who the saint defended, represents the province in which he extirpated heresies. Tradition has it that the moon stains represent the miraculous saint and his sword ready to defend those who seek their help.
