  • I was very sad about the State of conservation of the Church. There is no desire for preservation of our historic heritage. The Church is literally falling apart.

  • We visited the Church in passing by Islanders heading for the beautiful beaches of Ilhéus, an attraction for those who like to take several pictures of historical architectures.

  • The Church was with the tiles shows, unlined, in precaríssimo State of conservation. Regrettable. The ladies who were inside said the Church would pass for reform soon. While it doesn't happen, I don't think you should spend your time to visit.
