Former capital of Brazil and the spiritual home of much of its traditional culture.

There’s a great deal to pack into a couple of days in Salvador. You can spend your time wandering the pretty streets of the old colonial neighbourhood, watching the impromptu displays of capoeira (the slave’s athletic fight/dance) or attending Candomble rituals (an African religion that has deep roots in Salvador).

All of our hotels are located in the charming colonial old town of Pelourinho making exploration of this (the best part of the city) much easier.

What to do

  • Explore the pretty colonial streets of the Colonial Old town
  • Enjoy impromptu street displays of capoeira and drumming
  • Visits to excellent dance shows in the evening
  • Percussion workshops
