Salvador

Black Rome

Nowhere are the traditions of Brazil's African-background community as strong as in Salvador, the colorful, historical capital of Bahia state.
Venture out of the city with trips to Guarajuba Beach (in Guarajuba) and Forte Beach (in Praia do Forte). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Pelourinho, stroll through Praia do Porto da Barra, kick back and relax at Praia Farol da Barra, and pause for some serene contemplation at Nossa Senhora da Conceição da Praia.

For photos, where to stay, traveler tips, and tourist information, read Salvador trip planner.
