City breaks to Salvador
Brazil has a well-deserved reputation for being an enchanting, gorgeous country with fascinating culture and incredible things to experience. But to really have the kind of experience you’ve only dreamed of, you should choose your Brazilian destination carefully. Salvador, also known as Salvador de Bahia, has beautiful beaches, warm weather throughout the year, wonderful people, incredible food and fascinating culture. Because of its easygoing people, famous street carnival and other many outdoor parties, it is known as Brazil’s capital of happiness. The city’s heavy African influence has made Salvador the centre of Afro-Brazilian culture and you will see that reflected in the city’s music, cuisine and people. City breaks to Salvador should definitely include visiting the Pelourinho, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Pelourinho, Salvador’s historical centre, has historical monuments from the 17th-19th centuries and Portuguese colonial architecture. Salvador’s population is close to 4 million but the city’s crime rates are much lower than those of other Brazilian cities such as Rio de Janeiro and Recife. A city break in the lovely city of Salvador will show you the Brazil you’ve only dreamed of and more.
