Nossa Senhora da Conceicao da Praia church, Salvador

(4.7/5 based on 360 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.

The inhale is splendid beyond the beauty of the image, at the time it was made they covered the saints of diamonds, then Nossa Sra. da Conceição, has earrings, rings. A tip that hardly anyone knows, the day 31/12, the Lord of the Sandeel Nav gauntlets, via ssa with sailors, fishermen and participants of the Congregation of our Lady da Conceição, in the harbor he is with the Madonna is following in procession. It's beautiful because podemosfacilmente's view the 18th-century Sandeel, near which is beautiful, and then thanking all the blessings we have received during the year, the parish priest to give us the blessing of happy new year, we stay close to our Lady, and of Mr. of the Mariners that the next day will participate in the procession of boats. Don't forget to schedule to spend this moment so strong embatermos of energy.
