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.

  • In fact, this square is in the passage between the Lacerda Elevator and the pillory. There's no great attractions, but is the site of the Cathedral.

  • It's a nice little square. When I went was happening a demonstration "Out Fear", so I quickly. Between the Lacerda Elevator and the pillory.

  • There are numerous old houses on site, which brings us back to how it was that place in the past. Preserved and beautiful locations. Stalls and restaurants selling local foods and items.
