Created at the end of the 17th century, the Capela Dourada (Golden Chapel), also known as the Capela dos Noviços, is a chapel of the Franciscan Order, inside the larger building complex of the Santo Antônio Church & Convent, which includes the Franciscan Museum of Sacred Art.

Revista Continente (pg 62-65) also has an article about the chapel, in Portuguese, with a few more nice images.
