About Salvador

Salvador (full title Salvador da Bahia), once the capital of Portugal’s New World colony, is a true hidden gem amongst the more popular Brazilian tourist destinations such as Rio de Janeiro.

It’s a haven for lovers of architecture, with an array of well-preserved 17th and 18th Century buildings reminding of the city’s colonial past. There are also some beautiful churches that make for a great photography subject.

If you’re here at the right time, you might be lucky enough to witness one of the many street festivals, where drums reverberate through the streets. Later at night you might see capoeira circles in the plazas.

There’s also a strong religious side to the city. Descendents of African slaves living here have kept their heritage and continue to devote themselves to African gods.
