Salvador

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 Candombl�.

Football in Salvador

Football fans in Salvador de Bahia support either Esporte Clube Bahia (Pitua�u) or Esporte Clube Vitoria (Barrad�o).

Salvador Tourism

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.
