Monastery of São Bento - Rio de Janeiro - Brazil


Content creator and pilot Digital Peace Drone created this beautiful drone video of one of the most well known monasteries in Brazil: the São Bento Monastery in the city of Rio de Janeiro.  The monastery is a Benedictine Abbey which dates to the late 16th century; the current structure dates to the late 17th century.  It's known in part for its ornately carved gliding, which were common features of the Baroque design.  Still operational, it's located on a hill near the center of the great city.
