Nossa Senhora da Conceição da Praia, Salvador

4.7
A grand stone cathedral situated in a picturesque spot, Nossa Senhora da Conceição da Praia is a fine example of 17th- and 18th-century architecture. With an imposing façade and a surprisingly delicate Baroque interior, this building impresses with both its scale and its intricacy. Marble floors and powerful limestone walls combine to provide a feeling of durability that is nicely offset by the artistic flair of the church’s internal décor. Having explored the church, be sure to take a moment to enjoy some peace in the adjoining courtyard.

  • The church is beautiful! On our visit we had the honor of having cassio's accompaniment that offered us a true church lesson.

  • The church is half worn out, but inside it is simply beautiful, in baroque style. It began to be built in 1739 at the site where there was a chapel considered one of the first in Brazil. It faces the beach, about 1,000 miles from the Lacerda elevator.

  • The Conceição da Praia, exit point of the cortege of the Bonfim wash, is undoubtedly one of the most bojitas churches in the country. Must!

  • This site cannot be stopped being visited for both locals and visitors. The church sits on the sacred Hill as it is called.... Full of good energies. Those who come to Salvador are mandatory stops.

  • I can't find a word to describe. And just wonderful, beautiful, with a peace, it's worth a lot to go. And it's very close to the Lacerda elevator.

  • Today the Soteropolitano people met early in the morning in front of the Basilica of Our Lady of Conceição da Praia to go towards the Sacred Hill, is the day of the washing of Bonfim! Let's ask for peace and protection. Hail Lord of Bonfim!
