The cathedral could really use some renovation. It looks TERRIBLE on the outside.

When that is said it is beautiful inside and worth a visit if you are there anyway.

It is starting to detiorate externally. Inside it is like many another cathedral, If you are wandering arount the historical centre of Ilheus, it is worth 10 minutes, but not much more.

It is always nice to come into the cathedrals when in a hot country. There is an interesting story about how the colonel, after a visit went down to the restaurant, and by a secret door could come to the Brazilian version of "Moulin Rouge" on the other side.

Just been renovated from outside and looks glourious. Just outside the Bar Vesuvius and you will not wonder anymore why Jorge Amado chose that spot at the bar...

Unfortunately it was closed but it's very beautiful outdoors so I imagine indoors! I really recommend to go there but on holidays isn't possible to see it :(
