Walking on the streets in the Historical District of Salvador feels like being taken back to ancient times in Brazilian history. Visit the first fort that was built at the entrance point of the bay of All Saints to protect the city from an attack. A stop at the city center is a must for anyone staying in Salavador da Bahia!
The streets of Central Salvador take tourists back to the beginnings of Brazil. Your tour begins at the Barra Lighthouse, passes the Teatro Castro Alves, home to the Bahian Symphony Orchestra and on to the Balé (ballet) de Castro Alves. The Forte de São Pedro and Praça Castro Alves are on route to the Historical Center of Pelourinho, which offers something to see along every street. Don't miss out on the historical churches, cafes, restaurants, shops and pastel-hued buildings. With more than a thousand houses, churches and monuments built since the 16th century, Salvador makes up the greatest collection of Baroque architectural heritage in Latin America.
