Starting on the second Thursday after January 6th’s Three Kings Day, the Festa do Bonfim is one of the most traditional syncretic celebrations in Salvador, a city where Roman Catholics and followers of African religions live side-by-side. During the festivities, the faithful attend a mass at the Church of Conceicao da Praia and gather for an 8-km procession towards the Bonfim Church, where a ritual called Lavagem do Bonfim takes place.
