Nossa Senhora da Conceição da Praia, Salvador

#6 of 33 in Historic Sites in Salvador
Church · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
A grand stone cathedral situated in a picturesque spot, Nossa Senhora da Conceição da Praia 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.

  • I visited this church with my 'History of Brazilian Art' class whilst studying in Salvador and it is definitely worth a visit! It is really easy to get to from the Pelourinho- just go down the lift...  more »
  • Love this place, beautiful old church in the Pelourinho. Not fancy or modern, but that's the point. Cheap or free to enter, depending on the time of day.  more »
