In 2003 Terreiro St. George Son of Goméia was declared as heritage material and immaterial by the Bahia State Heritage Institute.

The Terreiro, of Congo origin, is the result of the roots of Joãozinho da Goméia , famous Pai de Santo who for many years challenged the Brazilian bourgeois society, having even recorded Angola's first candomblé record and who contributed a lot to the elevation and preservation of the Afro-Brazilian culture.

The main character of Terreiro São Jorge was Mameto Mirinha de Portão, its first person in charge, translating an integral model of preservation of its Congolese origins. Religious syncretism is one of the hallmarks of Terreiro, with the thirteen careers and citrus of Cosme and Damião.
