Walking on the streets of the Historical District of Salvador, we feel like being taken back to the ancient times of Brazilian History. Until 1763, Salvador was the capital of the Portuguese Crown in Americans, besides being the main port of the southern hemisphere until the eighteenth century.
With an extensive shoreline and a constant year round temperature (around 25° C/ 77° F), Salvador is an innovation to outdoor leisure activities. The city’s tropical climate is enhanced by steady gentle breezes blowing the Atlantic Ocean and the All Saint’s Bay. With approximately 50 Km of beaches and one third of the shore of the All Saint’s Bay, Salvador is the ideal location for relaxing seaside vacations and the practice of water sports.
Its people is formed by native Americans, Portuguese and Africans and present an unique ethnic and cultural diversity that’s stands out for its harmonious and democratic coexistence, rarely found in the world today. The particular traits of each ethnic group that forms city’s population create original music, dance, and many other artistic cultural expressions.
