Nossa Senhora da Conceicao da Praia church, Salvador

(360+ reviews on the web)
Church
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 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

  • 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
