Salvador da Bahia possess an energy and unfiltered beauty that few cities can match.
Salvador was once the magnificent capital of Portugal's great New World colony. Its brilliantly hued center is a living museum of 17th- and 18th-century architecture and gold-laden churches. Salvador is also renowned for its incredible art movement. Wild festivals occur frequently here, with drum corps pounding out powerful and infectious rhythms almost on a daily basis.
Once a major South American slave trade hub, Salvador grew under deep influence of not only the Portuguese but also that of its African descendants. The presence of African elements is all around in Salvador, from the circles of capoeira (a combination of martial art and dance brought to Brazil by African slaves) on the plazas and open spaces, to the fragrant scent of acarajé (bean and shrimp fritters) and other delightful African delicacies.
Aside from the many attractions within the city, there are endless stretches of pristine beaches and gorgeous coastline right outside the city.
