  • Walk through the center of BA is a full ride, because the place has historic buildings, monuments, squares, cafés, bars, restaurants, shops, galleries and concerts. Despite the security far superior to what we have in Brazil, the crisis in the country is beginning to give hard signs, as homeless people and beggars in their old avenues.

  • With countless proposals for the entire family, explore it on foot or with passenger transport is recommended. Tourist offices provide maps to guide you comfortably. Attempting to traverse it in auto could be complicated by frequent cuts streets and few public places to park.

  • Traverse it is magnificent, for its great number of theatres and beautiful buildings, comparable to other major cities if it runs on day of week is very busy by the traffic and the amount of people that circulates ideal weekend
