Nowhere are the traditions of Brazil's African-background community as strong as in Salvador, the colorful, historical capital of Bahia state.
Step out of the city life by going to Praia do Lord and Itacimirim Beach. Igreja de Nosso Senhor do Bonfim and Nossa Senhora da Conceição da Praia will appeal to history buffs. When in Salvador, make a side trip to see Vilas do Atlantico Beach in Lauro de Freitas, approximately 40 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Stella Maris Beach, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Igreja da Ordem Terceira de Sao Francisco, and admire the striking features of Church of Our Lady of the Rosary of the Black People.
