4.3
#2 of 15 in Things to do in Valenca
Completed in 1780, on the site of an older and more modest chapel, Nossa Senhora do Amparo Church features two iconic domes, covered with blue and white tiles. Dedicated to Our Lady of Perpetual Help, the well-preserved rectangular church consists of nave, chancel, and sacristy, and includes a clock tower that was added in 1822. Inside you can see five white Neoclassical altars, gilded woodwork, and several sacred images of saints, painted in oil by unknown artists. The church is situated on a hill that offers panoramic views of the entire city, so be sure to bring your camera when visiting this historic city landmark.

  • The view of the Church Nossa Senhora do Amparo is divine. Great place to take beautiful photos. Avoid going during the night (very dangerous).

  • Beautiful, preserved, imposing, located in the high part of Valencia, forming a beautiful postcard.

  • Church built in the city look. Great surroundings with the traditional Bandstand. Inside with special paintings on the ceiling and altars with gold Bahian churches. Downside is the lack of the Saints in the side altars (prevention against theft).

  • Nossa Senhora do Amparo is the patron saint of workers. The place has a beautiful view of the city and nearby towns. Washing of Amparo is a traditional festival in the city of Valença, Bahia.
