Salvador, Bahia

Recommended Stay 2 days/2 nights.

Situated on a cliff above the Todos os Santos Bay, you will find Salvador da Bahia. Being Brazil’s first capital, this city is a fusion of Portugal and Africa, of the colonial and the modern, a captivating cultural cauldron. It was from here that much of the colony’s wealth originated, and to this day it continues to be the cradle of Brazil’s African cultural heritage. It battles with Rio claiming that Samba was born here, and much of Brazil´s popular music has also been influenced by Bahia’s local traditions. It is even a major birthplace for many of the nation’s African influenced religions such as Candomblé an Macumba. Add in a dash of tropical beaches, spicey dishes and colorful streets, it is easy to see why this UNESCO city is a popular destination.
