4.4/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web
Basilica Cathedral is richly decorated and lavishly beautiful, this gold-bedecked, intricately detailed cathedral dates back to the 17th century and was built in a style reflective of Portuguese churches of the time. The cathedral’s most prominent attractions include the three statues found on the façade--Ignatius Loyola, Francis Xavier, and Francis Borgia--and the wonderfully elaborate art on display above and around the altarpiece.

  • Not to be missed. The place is sensational and the Cathedral is beautiful, with lots of art and culture, in addition to the beauty and wealth.

  • A historical-cultural experience worth to those who visit Salvador. Could be better organized in terms of ride and instructions about the history of the Cathedral. However, it is a tour that you exploits without much assistance.
