This church is not well preserved as the other churches of Salvador, but I would recommend the visit. It has a nice altar. You pay about US$ 2.00 to enter.

Carmo Church is located in Carmo neighborhood which is sandwiched in between Pelorinho and Santo Antonio neighborhoods. Therefore you can start in Pelorinho and walk tour your way up to Carmo and the Church and Beyond. The Pestana hotel next door is what used to...More

This beautiful Carmelite convent is well worth a visit, not so much for the rococo church interior as for the adjoining chapels and convent buildings. It's not open all the time and it's tricky to find out opening hours in advance.

This church is in the hystorical center of Pelourinho and deserves the visit. Not only the church but the monastery at it side, transformed in a hotel, and specially the sacristy should be visit, only can be reached through the hotel.

Very beatiful church in the heart of the city. Must see inside and out. Good architecture and scenery outside the church.

We stayed at a hotel around the corner and this place has some interesting history and displays. Still under going renovations, hopefully they will finish sooner rather than later.

Agree with the previous comments. This church may not be the most beautiful church in the country, but the history is the thing here.

This is not a must see but if you are passing by and I am sure you are since Peleurinho area is not that big, go inside. The entrance fee is only 2 R$ and it is worth it since the real size Christ sculpture...More
