Salvador da Bahia Highlights
Salvador da Bahia has an energy and unadorned beauty that few cities can match. Its brilliantly hued center is a living museum of 17th- and 18th-century architecture and gold-laden churches. Wild festivals happen frequently, with drum corps pounding out powerful rhythms against the backdrop of brilliantly hued colonial buildings nearly every day of the year.
Aside from the many attractions within Salvador, gorgeous coastline lies right outside the city - a suitable introduction to the tropical splendor of Bahia.
