About this place

This beautiful church is built on the Large do Pelourinho and its construction started in the beginning of the 18th century. Slaves started to build the church and they were a part of the brotherhood of Our Lady of the Rosary of the Black Men of Pelourinho.

One of the reasons why they started the construction is that they weren´t allowed to enter other churches. It is also interesting to mention that because they worked during the day for their masters they dedicated themselves to build the church during the night. The church was completed about 100 years after the start of its construction.

Today, this church is one of the major tourist attractions in Salvador.
