Praca da Se, Salvador

(4/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Although the Cathedral was demolished in 1933, Praca da Se still bears the name "Cathedral Square." Plenty of beautiful and historic buildings remain to be admired, but as you walk through the square, your eyes and ears will likely be drawn towards a performance of capoeira--an acrobatic Brazilian martial art which combines elements of dance and combat. The square is the main access route to the historic neighbourhood of Pelourinho, so you can stop for a while to enjoy the spectacle before heading on to explore the city. To visit Praca da Se and get the most from your holiday in Salvador, create itinerary details personal to you using our Salvador itinerary planner.

  • Interesting place. A supplement to the Pillory. Place with mix of historic buildings and other more current. For those who like to buy souvenirs, during the day are some stalls selling varieties of souvenirs.

  • Characteristic point of Salvador. There are monuments, the Church, but on the whole it's a great view.

  • The square is part of the historic High complex, next to the Terreiro de Jesus and the Pillory and the path of the Lacerda Elevator. There is no way to bypass it and admire the houses around. Unfortunately you just have to pay attention with the insistence of the peddlers who come to be very inconvenient.
