    The Villa is quiet ... brings us peace only. Polite attendants and interesting exhibition. The Cafe has a tasty quiche with fair price. In addition to all the charm of the place.

    Place of unique architecture and very quiet, a pity that the House is not open to visitations, except when it occurs. However, has the contemporary room which always has exhibits. The coffee inside is a cozy location

    Beautiful buildings, both the historical and the new ones. Interesting exhibitions and a nice, cozy cafe with futons on the outside, great to spend an afternoon at.

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.
