Listen to the Fluttering Prayers

The ribbons tied to the gates of the Church of Bonfim (and to wrists of visitors in Salvador) signify the thousands of pilgrims who arrive at this historic site. The ribbons, called "lembrancas," are tied with a prayer or wish in mind. Each color signifies a syncretized identity of an African orixas and Catholic saint.
