Basilica Cathedral, Salvador

(4.4/5 based on 420+ 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.

  • Bom local para turismo.
  • Programe-se para vir nos horários onde há concerto de órgão. É lindo!
  • Igreja histórica de Salvador. Conservação deixa a desejar, mas recomendada a visita.
  • Uma das mais importantes.
