is the city where major part of population is Afro American people. They are descendants of former slaves, who were brought here from Africa. Despite hundreds years of slavery, planting of Catholicizm, they didn't forget their gods and built their churches.
But here are a lot of Catholic churches as well.
So, we are on the Terreiro de Jesus Square. And how many churches you can see around, look!
