This church is a bit different than others all over. As you can easily observe that it is quite old. What also caught my eyes it is its blue color on the outside. Beautiful!!

This church was by far one of my favourite visits in Salvador. It mixes catholic and camdomblé religions showing the strong religious syncretism in Brazilian society. Every Tuesday at 6pm there is a mass and the church is opened to the public. Some of the...More

It is lovely church, with a character of its own and very different from others in the old city. The best time to visit is when there is a mass happening. Great music and such fervor of those attending, singing and dancing to the music
