Odoyá, queen of the sea!

Save in Favorites

On February 2, there is the biggest party at Rio Vermelho neighborhood: the Iemanjá party! A crowd of devotees, admirers and curious people take their offerings to the Mother of Waters, asking for protection, in a unique and exciting ritual. The story goes that in a year of shortage of fish at sea, a group of fishermen offered gifts to the mother of the waters. In the following years, this ritual was repeated and the house of the fishermen, the “Peso House”, became a sacred place of the candomblé followers. In 1972, the place became Iemanjá’s House, and that’s where the procession of day 2 begins. Throughout the year, the patio of the house remains a place to sell fresh fish. The doors are open for visitation in the morning and early afternoon.
