  • The Church is in the historic centre, is pretty, but it was closed. The plate with this monument information spends being difficult viewing. The place has a beautiful view.

  • One of Brazil's oldest chapels, is in the historic centre so it's worth stopping to admire. It's a simple Chapel but with a lot of history.

  • It was in Porto Seguro that I learned the difference between "Church" and "Chapel". Well, that of St. Benedict, is considered a "Chapel" and not a "Church" for not "Bell Tower (belfry)". So, this simple Chapel, was formerly frequented by blacks in the era of slavery, since there was a lot of the segregation that leads us to a dark past that we must always remind you to never leave again.
