Bahia and Salvador Tourism Guide

The mixture of races, cultures and faiths, which has received generous doses of joy and syncretism, has given Bahia and Salvador a unique, upbeat atmosphere that attracts Brazilians and foreigners all year round.

It’s in the summer, however, that Salvador shines even brighter, with popular festivals that draw crowds behind religious images and, of course, the trios elétricos.

Brazil’s history was born in 1500, in Porto Seguro, and Brazilian culture was born in the second decade of the 16th century, with Caramuru, the patriarch of Brazil and the founder of Bahia, according to Jaboatão.
