Notes on the Geography of Brazil: Salvador: Photo 37

world pictures Brazil: Salvador

Robert Chester Smith writes that this Church of the Third Order of St. Francis, begun in 1703, is "without doubt the work of some monastic architect of Hispanic origin." He means that the style is perfectly churriqueresque, meaning in the style of the Spanish architect José Benito de Churriguera.

See Smith, p. 110.
