Nossa Senhora da Conceicao da Praia church, Salvador

4.6
#7 of 26 in Historic Sites in Salvador
Church Tourist Spot
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.

  • All we do Bonfim, but the Church of conceição da Praia in my opinion is much prettier. I love the Church of Bonfim. Visit the Church, Sister Dulce, her body was time in this church to be taken to the memorial, which is also downtown. Very close is the market model and the elevador lacerda and if I have time will still take a speedboat ride on big sea, because the output of the boats for island is just inches away. You can do this walking itinerary, but watch out for the belongings, without cameras and cell phones, the trade is place of great movement of people and we must be careful.

  • Every time I go to the neighborhood of trade, lower town, the Avenue of the outline I review this beautiful church. Coming from Portugal where there is another identical, was mounted in Salvador. Church of the patron saint of the city.

  • The internal environment is valued by the architectural line, classic details and without excess application of common gold wherever possible. Serves for meditation (when there is no specific event).

  • Beautiful and historic. Walls next to 1, big dining. Worth a visit also the site of the primitive Chapel nestled in the rock on the right side of the nave. Has an internal courtyard

  • The day 03/11 of 1940, the image of SENHOR DO BONFIM that Bahia has offered Sao Paulo, was received in this church in great solemnity, remaining there in visitation until 14 December of that year, when he went to the port to SP. I wonder if the Church has record of fact or pictures of the Church in the year 1940. I need urgently this information because I am completing a book and are important parts to it. Confirmed the information will schedule a date to go there. Beforehand grateful Maria Lucila Fernandez de Pinho

Where to stay in Salvador

The majority of accommodations in Salvador fall into three distinct groupings. If you want to be close to the best historical attractions, stay in or near the old town of Pelourinho, a few minutes from the city's west-facing coastline. This also puts you in the heart of Salvador's tourist-driven nightlife. Your second option is to stay at the southwestern tip of the city, in the neighborhood of Barram, where you'll have instant access to one of Salvador's favorite beaches. Finally, look a bit farther afield to Rio Vermelho, a quieter beachside neighborhood facing south.
