General description: St. Francisco's Church

General overview

The church of Saint Francis, located in the centre of Salvador, is one of the most interesting and most precious instances of the colonial sacral architecture in the vicinity. The temple was built by the Franciscans at the end of 16th century, right next to their monastery. Unfortunately, the original structure of the church was destroyed in the 17th century. The temple we can visit now was built in the first half of the 18th century.

Every visitor should enter the church and see its inside, which would astonish anyone. The amount of decorations fascinates and amazes at the same time. It is a typical instance of the so-called ""golden church"", which means that it's almost fully decorated with gold.
