A good piece of preserved history. Mass starts at 7:30pm. There's a sign giving a brief history of the island. The structure still stands strong as well as the painting and decoration.

Sitting atop of the main square this imposing building was a superb example of early Portuguese architecture. Unlike many I have seen the interior was fairly starc by comparison, but never the less. Well worth a visit and a photograph to remember..

A must see. One of the first attractions you will see after you get off the ferry from Salvador. Mesmerizing! A lot of history!
