Tourism in Salvador da Bahia

Located along the north-eastern coast of Brazil, Salvador da Bahia is a city of surprises.
Choose to travel back in time as you get lost in the city's winding alleys, learn new Capoiera
dance moves on the beach or just stroll along the moonlit pavements of the UNESCO World Heritage
Site of Pelourinho, the old city, and do not miss the crazy Tuesday-night street parties.

Salvador da Bahia is a perfect place for dense Brazilian history with numerous churches, the historic
lighthouse towering over the Barra area, and a bumpy elevator ride taking you from the Mercado Modelo
to the upper part of the city.

Being surrounded by beautiful tropical beaches, it is an ideal place for meeting local people and thus
practicing your communication and language fluency.
