Salvador is where Brazil meets Africa and the Caribbean. Wander through its atmospheric cobbled streets in the old quarter of Pelourinho, a UNESCO World Heritage Site which has been lovingly restored back to its former glory over the last decade. Several of the old colonial houses have been transformed into luxurious boutique properties right in the heart of this historic city centre. Visit magnificent baroque churches and museums and try the delicious Bahian cuisine.

Salvador's beaches

Salvador's stunning coastal setting looks out over the Bay of Todos os Santos and is a great place to discover the colonial heritage of Brazil. Combine Salvador with a stay at one of the fabulous beach resorts nearby such as Praia do Forte. 

Carnival in Salvador

Music is very much a part of the culture here and you can learn about capoeira, candomble or traditional forro music at different venues throughout the city. This lively cultural atmosphere means that Salvador can offer a great alternative but no less lively location than Rio for Carnival in February.
