The surrounding area is dirty, especially the steps area, and the square has almost no seating. It lacks that atmosphere that makes you want to stay and savour the area. Popped in and I was done in 10 minutes.

The banner at the door says that they are encouraging people to attend mass for GRACE! Very large interior, and well lit in white.

Worth seeing if your in Ilheus. Situated in the north part of Ilheus apart from what the map says.
