 Igreja São Bento, which was totally built in brickwork, is a tribute to Italian immigrants who have colonized the region, becoming a permanent trace of its main activity: viticulture. The altar and the doors of the church are made of wood; its four doors represent a wine barrel and on its benches the symbol of grape is engraved. Many colored stained glasses beautify the church with the shape of a wine cask.

The church is 13,50 meters high and it has 22,50 of diameter, with capacity for one thousand people.
