4.3/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web
Once among the first hospitals in the country, Museu da Misericórdia now houses religious artwork of inestimable value. Stop by to take a guided tour of the museum’s rich collection of sacred art, some of which is hundreds of years old. There’s also a portraits gallery of prominent benefactors and an archive of the region’s notable family histories. This building is an important national landmark, and one of the first religious complexes in the country to follow the building model of church at the center and long side wings. Rich in detail, the site has seen multiple costly renovations over the years. Most notably, in 1704 the staircase and the loggia overlooking the city’s famous bay were covered with expensive Portuguese marble.

  • Eu fiquei encantada, com a história e a arquitetura. A mulher que nos guiou foi muito atenciosa. Um dos melhores passeios que eu já fiz em Salvador.
  • Local tem uma boa estrutura mais no momento do encerramento do espetáculos as grandes que ficam ao redor do estádio representam verdadeiros gargalos no momento da saída, as vezes gerando um aglomeração desnecessária que pode causar um avidente.
