Salvador Travel Guide

The city of Salvador

The capital city has managed to preserve some magnificent examples of Renaissance architecture. The historical centre of Salvador is still essentially as it was in the 16th century, despite the city’s expansion in the following centuries. Multicolored homes, red-tiled roofs, a wonderful market, twisting and narrow cobblestone streets, great beaches and around 300 churches makes this an excellent place to visit. Pelourinho, an old neighborhood of Salvador, contains the most extensive example of baroque architecture in the Americas. Six hundred buildings in the area were immaculately restored and included by UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization) in its list of world heritage sites.

There are several attractions particularly worth visiting in Pelourinho: But there’s more to Salvador than the Pelô. A few other neighborhoods that are worth the visit:
  • Carmo
  • Rio Vermelho
  • Barra
