Church of Our Lady of the Rosary of the Black People in Brazil

Igreja de Nossa Senhora do Rosário dos Homens Pretos

Built by Black Slaves and Freemen This pretty blue church was built by black slaves and freemen over a period of more than 100 years. Like almost everything else on Feb. 26th, it was closed as people recovered from Carnaval.

Worth a Visit The church just seems to dominate the entire square. The outside was maybe a bit more enjoyable than the inside.

Externally Colorful -Internally Not That Good This church and the order of Our lady of Rosary was dedicated to the slaves of African origin .

This famous church dominates Pelourinho Square with its unmistakable blue façade.
