Salvador was established by the Portuguese on 29th March, 1549.

Salvador grew during the slave trade and it is thanks to the Afro-descendents that Salvador has such an unique cultural richness today.

The African influence can be seen and felt all around Salvador de Bahia; from the moves of capoeira to the beats of atabaques and the combination of the two in the rites of the Candomblé.

Salvador Tourism

Salvador can be divided into Cidade Baixa (low) and Cidade Alta (high), connected by the Elevador Lacerda

The biggest tourist attraction is the Pelourinho; the historical centre of Salvador, in Cidade Alta. Its churches and colourful colonial buildings were declared a UNESCO world heritage site, in 1985.

The capital of the state of Bahia also has some wonderful beaches nearby; although it is advised to avoid the more deserted ones, as you're never really alone and daylight robberies are common.
