Holidays To Salvador

It's Never Too Late To Book Your Holiday deals

Salvador da Bahia has a vigor and unembellished charm that few cities could contest. Once the spectacular metropolis of Portugal’s great New World territory, Salvador is the country’s Afro-Brazilian gem. Its radiantly colored hub is a living museum of 17th- and 18th-century structures and gold-laden chapels. Most notably, Salvador is the center of a marvellous arts crusade. Wild carnivals occur often, with drum corps beating out strong rhythms against the setting of pioneering structures nearly every day. At night, capoeira circles shape on squares and open spaces, while the fragrance of acarajé (bean and shrimp fritters) and other African pleasures occupies the evening breeze. There’s no other location in the world where successors of African slaves have conserved their tradition as well as in Salvador – from music and religion to food, dance and martial-arts customs. Apart from the various appeals inside Salvador, attractive shores rest right outside the city – a worthy presentation to the sweltering magnificence of Bahia.

Porto da Barra Beach

Located in the Barra neighborhood in Salvador, this was the site of Bahia's first European settlement. The Porto da Barra Beach features a small, white colonial fort at one end and a whitewashed church sitting up on a hill at the other. The water here is pretty calm and the sunsets are to die-for.

Church of Nosso Senhor do Bonfim

The Church of Nosso Senhor do Bonfim is remarkable and unique due to fact that the devotees that throng here hang plastic body parts as prayers for their speedy recovery! Many hundreds of plastic body parts hang from the ceiling of the 18th century Church creating a rather eerie yet fascinating scenario.

Museu Rodin Bahia

Dedicated to the great sculpture Auguste Rodin, the museum features four pieces of Rodin’s masterpieces which are the main attractions here.
