Basilica of Our Lord of Bonfim
It is the most traditional church in Salvador, perhaps the most famous in Brazil. It was erected in the Sacred Hill, from 1745, and it is in its staircases that the famous celebration of the Wash of the Bonfim takes place.
A striking symbol of Bahia is the colored ribbons that stand on the church's bars. They are also known as "measure" because they originally had the right arm measurement of the image of the Lord of Bonfim. The believers tie a ribbon on their wrists, give them three knots, and each one makes an order - it is a tradition to buy ribbons in the city.
