Nossa Senhora da Conceicao da Praia church, Salvador

4.6
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.

  • Is one of the oldest churches of Brazil. In addition to the beautiful exterior, internally is to hyperventilate. It was built with stone brought from Portugal. Worth visiting.

  • It's a church fully manufactured in Portugal and brought to Bahia as cargo in the holds of ships needed ballast. On the way back they took our gold. The parts, carved in Portugal were numbered here assembled. Day 8 of December commemorates N.S. da Conceição da Praia with military tents in the streets and the people participating. Is a popular party.

  • Attend mass on the day 08 December is a time of thanks, a lot of faith! That's when we renew our strengths and beliefs!

  • All efforts that can be made to restore and conserve this beautiful temple are beautiful. In addition to your own monumental architecture, it is situated in a unique location, facing the Bay of all saints. Thus, disappointed a little bit that there is a souvenir shop well organised, so that tourists can also contribute in this way to the conservation of the Basilica.
