Series on my trip to SALVADOR - The Capital City of the State of BAHIA - The NORTHEASTERN region of BRAZIL - My Country's first Capital City - #012 !

IGREJAS II - CHURCHES II - ÉGLISES II - IGLESIAS II - Another very interesting religious architecture around the historical center of Salvador. Here, the "Igreja da Ordem Terceira de São Francisco".

There are two WS versions with closer views of this church.

"SALVADOR is located on a small, roughly triangular PENINSULA that separates the BAÍA DE TODOS OS SANTOS/"All Saints' Bay" from the open waters of the ATLANTIC OCEAN. The bay, which got its name from the fact that it was discovered on All Saints' Day forms a natural harbor. SALVADOR is a major export port, lying at the heart of the "Recôncavo Baiano" (an important geographical region of the State of Bahia), a rich agricultural and industrial region encompassing the northern portion of coastal Bahia. The local terrain is diverse ranging from flat to hills and low mountains.

A particularly notable feature is the escarpment that divides Salvador into the Cidade Alta ("Upper Town" - rest of the city) and the Cidade Baixa ("Lower Town" - northwest region of the city), the former some 85m (275 ft) above the latter, with the city's cathedral and most administrative buildings standing on the higher ground. An elevator (the first installed in Brazil), known as ELEVADOR LACERDA has connected the two sections since 1873, having undergone several upgrades since then.

The Deputado Luís Eduardo Magalhães International Airport connects Salvador with Brazilian cities and also operates international flights!" (SOURCE: WIKIPEDIA)
