  • Linda Church. Great place to visit, both for religious reasons, or historical tours. Easy access, by being in the Centre of ilheus, so close to many other alternatives of visitation.

  • In 1927 was demolished the chapel of St. Sebastian of the 18th century, to the construction of the majestic Cathedral of São Sebastião in 1931. In 1967, the dream of the Bishop Fray Eduardo José Herberold materialised with the completion of the Cathedral. On your inside are two burial vaults-Bishop Eduardo, buried in 1939, when the Cathedral was still under construction. And, the other, of Don Isaac Tepe, buried day February 16 2003.

  • Beautiful, impressive, eclectic with strong presence of neoclassical architecture, very well preserved, especially taking into consideration be near the sea. The presence of several Saints is a sign of religious syncretism.
