Salvador Lower City tour - half a day to experience a different Salvador.

star-3

On this tour, you will get a different view of the Salvador by visiting its Lower City and the peninsula of Itapagipe. It's completely surrounded by the calm waters of the bay, an oasis of peace at only 8 km from the busy harbor area and my favorite part of the city where I lived for more than 20 years. I recommend a visit to the biggest and swarming open market of the city, called São Joaquim to dive into the daily live and habits of the locals and discover some secrets of the Candomblé, the African religion. We visit neighborhoods like Ribeira, with fantastic views on the Bay of All Saints and its small marinas and the possibility to taste the best ice cream of the city! Then the famous church of Nosso Senhor do Bonfim, a unique place for pilgrimage where you can still feel the syncretism between Catholicism and Candomblé. Finally the Fort of Monte Serrat and Ponta de Humaitá, the most romantic spot in Salvador with the possibility to see one of the most wonderful sunsets of Brazil!

On this tour, you will know the most important places in the old part of Salvador. As it has been the first capital of Brazil this is also a historical tour. We visit the neighborhood of Barra, the place where the Portuguese colony started and where I discovered Salvador some decades ago... but I had more eye for the beaches at that time! We visit the iconic lighthouse to have a splendid view of the bay and ocean. We take the Avenue of the 7th of September to get to the Pelourinho, my favorite place in Salvador. It's also called the Historical Center, a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO, and it's a must for the visitors. A complete old neighborhood, upon a cliff inside the bay, full of churches and magnificent colorful mansions in typical Portuguese colonial style. We visit this place walking through the lively squares and cobblestone streets experiencing the local atmosphere and people that will not let you impassive.
