Sao Francisco Church and Convent in Brazil

I Wish We Had Been Able to See Inside! Our cruise arrived in Salvador on Feb. 26th and almost everything was closed as people recovered from celebrating Carnaval.

Truly Magnifient One of the most memorable churches we've ever visited. Couldn't decide whether I liked the gold gilding more or all of the blue porcelain. Both are magnificent!.

Must see colonial church! The Church and Convent original buildings date from 1686 and were continued through the 18th century.

One of the most spectacular churches in the world, this famous church is richly adorned inside with gold, silver and precious stones and has ceiling art that has been compared to that of the Sistine Chapel.
