  • Beautiful church right in the Center gives the city, by the story we heard portrays well the wealth that Islanders lived. Worth the visit.

  • Beautiful church on the outside and on the inside, it is worth visiting. It is opposite the beach, next to the Museum of Jorge Amado, binding site for tourists who are in Ilhéus.

  • Once again, I've been in Ilhéus. Turned way from the sticks. But this is the first time I've seen this Cathedral inside, and didn't realize what I was missing. It's very beautiful inside. There was a wedding at the time I visited, causing an interesting contrast between the clothing of the guests and I, a simple tourist. Nominate the visit.
