Salvador Upper City Tour

 

On this tour you will know the most important places of Salvador and learn about the history of the first capital of the colony Brazil. We start at the famous Lighthouse of Barra, where you have a splendid view on the Bay of All Saints and the Atlantic Ocean at the same time. From Barra, we take the main avenue, passing diverse neighbourhoods such as the Corridor of Victoria bordered by ancient trees, and a busy commercial area, to arrive in the Historical Center, called so after the UNESCO made it a World Heritage Site. This place is a must for the visitors: a complete old neighbourhood, called the Pelourinho, in the Upper City inside the bay, full of churches and magnificent colorful mansions in typical Portuguese colonial style that we will visit walking through the lively squares and cobblestone streets experiencing the local atmosphere and people that will not let you impassive. Don't forget to visit the church of São Francisco, a real jewel with its fantastic Baroque interior covered by gold leaves.
