Salvador de Bahia
Salvador de Bahia – Salvador is the capital of Bahia State, known for its natural beauty and warm people. There you can visit Pelourinho, the historic downtown, considered a world heritage by UNESCO. The neighborhood has mansions and multi-story houses inspired on Portuguese baroque architecture, as well as churches from the 17th and 18th centuries. Salvador is also known for its heavy African influences – given the long-time presence of Afro-Brazilians (since the colonial period).
