Nossa Senhora da Conceicao da Praia church, Salvador
(4.7/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
A grand stone cathedral situated in a picturesque spot, Nossa Senhora da Conceicao da Praia church 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.

  • If you start the visit to the historic centre by the lower town, be sure to visit this church, which is just a few metres from the lacerda elevator and model market. Beautiful altar.
