Capital of Brazil until 1763, Salvador has those emblematic colored streets, the charming mixture of cultures. And the food! Book a flight and...
Walk the round stone pavement
Did you know a Salvador local is called "soteropolitan"? The historic center (Pelourinho), with the colonial facades, is a World Heritage Site and the first place to go. Also very iconic is the Baroque church of Nosso Senhor do Bonfim; actually, you’ll find more than 300 churches all over the city.
Give in to the flavors
We’re talking, of course, about "moqueca," "vatapá," "acarajé"... The strong flavors of a culinary tradition with native and African influences is one of the symbols of Salvador. And beyond the evocative songs of local musicians (like Gilberto Gil), there’s samba: this is by far the largest cultural event in the city.
