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 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.
