Igreja Matriz Nossa Senhora D'Ajuda, Porto Seguro

Church · Tourist Spot
With a lovely view of Arraial out its backdoor, the Igreja Matriz Nossa Senhora D'Ajuda is a peaceful spiritual viewpoint. This is the church that gave rise to the town below, but even still it retains the simple and unassuming architecture reflecting the Jesuit’s austere moral code. Before heading back to town, stop for a tasty ice cream at “Uai Uai” next to the church. Remember to tie a ribbon on the wall to pay tribute to the patron saint of the Camp.
