Salvador is the center of Afro-Brazilian culture, mixing Portugal and several African countries, thanks to its active role and importance during the colonial period, in which it was the capital.
Divided into two levels, Cidade Baixa, concentrating maritime activities around the Baía de Todos os Santos, and Cidade Alta, predominantly residential and administrative.
Highlights in Salvador:
In the Baixa city, the beaches, Humaitá, Bonfim and their traditions.
In the city Alta, Pelourinho and all the surrounding historic area. Connecting the two areas next to Mercado Modelo, the Lacerda elevator is a reference.
