Where to stay in Salvador

The majority of accommodations in Salvador fall into three distinct groupings. If you want to be close to the best historical attractions, stay in or near the old town of Pelourinho, a few minutes from the city's west-facing coastline. This also puts you in the heart of Salvador's tourist-driven nightlife. Your second option is to stay at the southwestern tip of the city, in the neighborhood of Barram, where you'll have instant access to one of Salvador's favorite beaches. Finally, look a bit farther afield to Rio Vermelho, a quieter beachside neighborhood facing south.

  • There you can take a picture with several celebrities with singer Britney Spears, Caco Barcelos, Adriana esteves and 16/05/2017 day I went to the Pillory and glanced at the Olodun House, there in the front was students with the uniform of the "casa do Olodum" and friendly asked if I could take a picture with them and to my surprise I took a not huge I had never taken in life. So I wonder ... That's not the image that the media shows of Bahia "joyful people, educated and contagious" SQN. That's because they're not famous. Imagine if they were? Why can't God aza the snake. Regrettable.

  • Who is in the Pelourinho gotta visit the casa do olodum, as it is a tourist symbol of Salvador. I'm always testing the olodum in tereza batista and step every time at the home of olodum to purchase souvenirs.
