    Place to buy gifts and learn a little of the history of Bahia. The market is just in front of the Lacerda Elevator and the maritime terminal of Salvador. Recommend going to the top floor, in addition to the cheaper prices, restaurants, great to experience the local cuisine and enjoy the view of the Bay.

    Tourist site for buying souvenirs. Prices a bit high, however, offers products that are not found in many other parts of the city. It is located in front of the elevador lacerda, in lower town.

    It is composed of a series of jobs, type fair offering crafts and memories of Salvador, the prices are the same as on the premises of the street and articles also... Only worth a visit for what historically is this place, is an old market where it was bought and sold everything, including slaves.

    More or less same stuff you can buy at the local airport, but in a greater variety and more fun to shop here. Mercado Modelo hasn't changed for last 10 years. The neighborhood is pretty dangerous by night.

    Great place to buy souvenirs from Salvador! It's an old market with all kind of stuff that you can imagine, from clothes to food! Some prices are negotiable!

    Super fun market with fair prices. Have some beer in the back!

    Be careful here .. agressive marketing at its best .. makes it uncomfortable for the people who come to visit

    Typical tourist trap. Go for the local food, especially sweets. Avoid the restaurant.

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.
