Salvador

Overview Home to the largest, best-preserved colonial quarter in the Americas, Salvador (pop. 2.5 million) was founded in 1536 and soon became Brazil’s most important port and first capital. For over two centuries, Salvador thrived on the flourishing commerce of sugar cane, gold and diamonds, which resulted in the building of several Baroque churches, ornate mansions, and plazas. During this time, prompted by the increasing labor demand, African slaves were brought in to work the plantations. They brought with them their rich culture and traditions that still survive throughout Brazil, but mainly in Bahia, where the influence permeates all aspects of life - from exotic cuisine to spectacular Capoeira ritualistic dances, to rich musical heritage, to the spiritual Candomble religion. Today Salvador offers a spicy mixture of modernity and tradition, an idyllic place to relax on its inviting beaches as well as a cultural enclave embodying the very spirit of Brazil.
