The centre of the country’s Afro-Brazilian community, Salvador da Bahia is a seamless blend of cultures, beautifully reflected in its structures, traditions and day-to-day life. The historic Pelourinho district will intrigue you with its colourful colonial architecture, splendid churches and performances of the martial art, capoeira. Also worth a visit is the Museu Náutico da Bahia, a museum capturing the colonial history of seafaring and slave trade. The unique cuisine is a special highlight of Salvador—try sampling some moqueca or seafood stew, as well as the popular coconut-based treat, cocada. The city becomes even more lively at night—hop across the bars of Pelourinho for live concerts or head to Rio Vermelho for some foot-tapping jazz music.
