What is the little church like where Roberto Carlos got married for the third time?

The temple located next to the building where the singer lives was the scene of other relevant moments in his biography

Roberto Carlos and Maria Rita would have celebrated 28 years of marriage in April. The pedagogue died at the age of 38, of cancer, in 1999, three years after the couple had exchanged vows of love.

The ceremony, which was attended by just 20 guests, took place in the Nossa Senhora do Brasil parish, a few meters from the building where they lived, in Urca, south of Rio.

Opened 90 years ago, the Hispanic Neocolonial-style church was frequented by the artist when he moved to the neighborhood in the early 1980s.

His second wife, actress Myriam Rios (the first was Nice, whom he married in Bolivia), said in interviews that the romantic idol did not go a single Sunday without attending mass.

The wedding of Roberto and Maria Rita, who had already been living together for five years, took place in secret. The press only found out days later.

He was wearing light blue trousers, t-shirt and jacket, and white shoes. She, blue satin skirt and white lace blouse. A discreet chord served to tie her hair. In her hands a bouquet of white flowers.

Among the witnesses were the bride’s parents and Laura Braga, Roberto Carlos’ mother. After the religious blessing, the spouses welcomed the small group for a champagne toast.

After the loss of his third wife, the singer participated in several masses in her memory. On the 10th anniversary of her death in 2009, he took communion and sang “Detalhes” to honor her.

The singer said

The parish was also the scene of celebrations for the souls of his mother, Lady Laura (in 2010), his two deceased children, Ana Paula (2011) and Dudu (2021), his press advisor and friend Ivone Kassu (2012) and his secretary Carminha Silva (2023).

Discreet, the small church of Urca is part of the history of Brazil’s most popular singer. There she experienced happy and exciting moments and several times cried with desire.

At the date of the ceremony Maria Rita was 35 years old and Roberto 54;  we lived together for another 3 years and 8 months
