On this tour, you will know the most important places in the old part of Salvador. As it has been the first capital of Brazil this is also a historical tour. We visit the neighborhood of Barra, the place where the Portuguese colony started and where I discovered Salvador some decades ago... but I had more eye for the beaches at that time! We visit the iconic lighthouse to have a splendid view of the bay and ocean. We take the Avenue of the 7th of September to get to the Pelourinho, my favorite place in Salvador. It's also called the Historical Center, a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO, and it's a must for the visitors. A complete old neighborhood, upon a cliff inside the bay, full of churches and magnificent colorful mansions in typical Portuguese colonial style. We visit this place walking through the lively squares and cobblestone streets experiencing the local atmosphere and people that will not let you impassive.

The best way to experience the city of Salvador, dive into its history, culture, religiosity, and the habits of the people of Bahia, is to combine the Upper City and Lower City tours into one Full Day tour (see also the descriptions of the Upper and Lower City tours). One of my favorite places in the Upper City is the Pelourinho neighborhood, where besides the beauty of the monuments, squares and colonial houses, you can feel the sympathy, energy and joy of the Soteropoletanos - that's how the locals of Salvador are called - who work and live in this lively neighborhood. Maybe you'll be able to experience some action, like Capoeira dancing or a local drum band performing in the streets. You will have the opportunity to lunch in a cozy, local restaurant and taste one of the delicious regional dishes, such as my favorite, the "moqueca", a stew of fish and or seafood prepared in the African way! This tour offers you an unforgettable experience with satisfaction guaranteed!
