Nossa Senhora da Ajuda Church, Arraial d'Ajuda

4.6
#3 of 10 in Historic Sites in Porto Seguro
With a lovely view of Arraial out its backdoor, the Nossa Senhora da Ajuda Church is a peaceful spiritual viewpoint. This is the church that gave rise to the town below, but even still it retains the simple and unassuming architecture reflecting the Jesuit’s austere moral code. Before heading back to town, stop for a tasty ice cream at “Uai Uai” next to the church. Remember to tie a ribbon on the wall to pay tribute to the patron saint of the Camp.

  • Really a very old church in excellent condition located in a privileged place with an exceptional view with a tradition of tying ribbons to request desires to visit without a doubt

  • The view behind the Church is the highlight and a must. Parallel there is some craft stores, a store sells very well elaborated and typical of the region, for those who like to bring personal recollections. We bought a wooden lizard painted with brushstrokes of point-to-point techniques forming individual mosaics all over extension of the animals. Mosaic mirror decorated with vidral, show! On average the shops that charge values on average R$75,00 perimeter for these paintings in 20 cm size, this shop paid for $40.00 lizard. In this Square near the Church, visit the coffee of Santa (a must, especially the Macarron of dulce de leche and strawberry and coffee and the Empórium, where elaborate dishes).

  • Do not enter the Church, but her funds have a wall with colored ribbons that has a spectacular view. Take lots of pictures, cliché on the tapes and watching the Green and the sea on the horizon. It's worth it.
