Praca da Se, Salvador
(3.9/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Although the Cathedral was demolished in 1933, Praca da Se still bears the name "Cathedral Square." Plenty of beautiful and historic buildings remain to be admired, but as you walk through the square, your eyes and ears will likely be drawn towards a performance of capoeira--an acrobatic Brazilian martial art which combines elements of dance and combat. The square is the main access route to the historic neighbourhood of Pelourinho, so you can stop for a while to enjoy the spectacle before heading on to explore the city. To visit Praca da Se and get the most from your holiday in Salvador, create itinerary details personal to you using our Salvador itinerary planner.

  • Great place for history, Salvador tourist spot. Wheels of chicken coops are presented and some other cultural events. One must be careful, because in spite of local security, there are unfortunately people who steal in place. Therefore, it is not recommended to walk with camera in hand or other electronic devices, avoid walking in alleys and narrow streets where there is no reasonable movement of people. Not be interested in all the people present to sell them with exorbitant prices.

  • Interesting, because there are also in são paulo a square of the same name, cozy place, but not safe at night.

  • The square is part of the Pelourinho, its special atmosphere, the churches that surround it, its typical houses, music and dances always present, make it a place not to be missed!
