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.

  • An excellent place for those who like to art or faith. Have brochures for the visitors in various languages. It has several rooms with various antiques, stamps, money, etc. There is also a patio with murals with Portuguese tiles. The main nave of the Cathedral is divine, in addition to the opulence of its decorations in gold, moldings of animals, humans, flowers, etc. To the right of the altar there are some candles electric that is light of to a when is placed coins of any value, besides collaborate is something colorful to do with ninio.

  • 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.
