  • This is a historic church located in the historic centre of ilheus. Is an interesting Church for her age, but nothing exceptional.

  • Attention rulers, history of Ilhéus is going into the hole. Beautiful old church in a phase of "tipping".

  • Ilhéus is not surprising. Lives of the fame of the novel and of your past the base of cocoa. Who has ever seen a church, you've seen them all. Maybe this only appears more because of your q architecture differs from the houses and establishments in your vise.
