Itapagipe Peninsula

Itapagipe Peninsula

Projecting into the bay, the Itapagipe Peninsula is located directly to the north of the commerical district and draws many visitors each year since it is the home of the Igreja de Nosso Senhor do Bonfim or the Church of Our Lord of Bonfim.   This church dates back to the middle of the 18th century and is central to the Catholic faith in Bahia.  It is well known beacuse of it's practice of distributing coloured Bonfim fitas also known as ribbons.  These ribbons are tied around wrists, with each knot representing a wish that is said to come true when the ribbon eventually falls off.  

 

For the best views of Salvador, take a stroll up the hill opposite the church and follow the road that leads toward the Boa Viagem neighbourhood.  As this is open public space, there are no hours of operation and no costs associated with it.
