  • I have visited some churches in the Brazilian Baroque, between Minas, Rio and Bahia, but without doubt consider this the most beautiful and sumptuous of them. A visit worth the beauty and history. If you want to enrich your visit, always is a guide at the entrance of the Church that can accompany you for a contribution.

  • It is located beside the Church of San Francisco, but you pay different input. The front which has is the most beautiful of all the churches of the old town.

  • Incredible
  • With the arrival of the Franciscan third order to Brazil between 1555 and 1557, being the third Order of Franciscans of Bahia founded in 1635, by Fr. Cosimo de San Damiano, with headquarters at the convent of San Francisco, and the first temple completed in 1644. The construction of the current church, had your planning started in 1686, with the foundation stone installed in 1702, with the structure completed in 1703 and 1705, undergoing reconstruction in 1799, after a fire. Its facade is carved in stone sandstone, the only one of its kind in Brazil, houses precious works of sacred art, such as sculpture of Lord killed by Francisco Xavier das Chagas, in which drops of blood are represented by rubies. Its original decoration in Baroque carved, was replaced by the neoclassical in 1827, boasts beautiful Portuguese tile panels. In your interior is the ossuary of San Francisco where are buried distinguished representatives and families, it also has an area of events.

  • Do not confuse with the Church and convent of San Francisco, which is just glued to it, is beautiful but not comparable. Portuguese colonial Baroque façade as can be seen in the ornate decoration and ball armillar. You need some internal reforms. Before your next visit so do not disappoint. Payment FAQ

  • The internal and fantastic, visit Church is a Cultural Treasure but felt aggrieved as a guide that was there was explaining all of the Church and then practically read R $80.00; Until I argued but ... If your case ask before as the churches DON'T HAVE GUIDES.

Where to stay in Salvador

The majority of accommodations in Salvador fall into three distinct groupings. If you want to be close to the best historical attractions, stay in or near the old town of Pelourinho, a few minutes from the city's west-facing coastline. This also puts you in the heart of Salvador's tourist-driven nightlife. Your second option is to stay at the southwestern tip of the city, in the neighborhood of Barram, where you'll have instant access to one of Salvador's favorite beaches. Finally, look a bit farther afield to Rio Vermelho, a quieter beachside neighborhood facing south.
