History

Welcome to Arraial d'Ajuda

Arraial d'Ajuda is the location of the first “Mariano” sanctuary in Brazil, built by the Jesuits when they arrived here in 1549 aboard three ships: Concepcion, Salvador, and Ajuda. The first cities and churches were named after these vessels, and the construction of the Iglesia de Nuestra Señora d’Ajuda began in 1550. Today it is the meeting point for hundreds of pilgrims. The cultural legacy left here by the Portuguese colonies is still in full view of the masses in this iconic building.

In times gone by, Arraial d'Ajuda was a fishing village made up of beautiful beaches and old buildings. Nowadays it has become one of the most visited towns in the northeast of Brazil, boasting renovations and improvements such as the Rua do Mucuge, which is home to restaurants, shops, and boutique stores.
