Praca da Se, Salvador

3.3
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. Put Praca da Se and other Salvador attractions into our Salvador trip planner , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Praça da Sé is located in the center of the Pelourinho. Area that counts much of the history of Brazil. There are guides to accompany the groups and explain each of the tourist attractions that exist in that area.

  • This visit to Salvador, made me happy, because I saw very good changes. Much more well cared for, much cleaner. The Praça da Sé is located in the historic center of Salvador, has a great trade, and it is very good, the Cruz Caída. There are a lot of people, capoeira dancing, etc., etc. Stay tuned for your belongings.

  • Next to Pelourinho, with its beautiful cathedral all in gold, and close to the Museum of Mercy, those who go to Salvador can not fail to go.
