Long Description:
Since XVII century Our Lady of the Conceição has been the name of a chapel in Sao Paulo. In its place another church was constructed that was finished in 1794.

As the quarter grew, the bishop D. Mateus de Abreu Pereira transformed it into a main parochial. Priest Antonio Paes de Camargo was its first leader. Demolished in 1905, it was rebuilt in 1912. After great reformation, the churched received the name from Basilica of the Santíssimo Sacrament, in 1958. Thus the lateral streets received the names from Conceição (currently Cásper Líbero) and Santa Ifigênia.
