  • I went with a friend and I really enjoyed going to church with Gregorian chant. The Church is very beautiful and has sacred pieces. Has place to park.

  • Ali lives in clausura Benedictine monks, there lives the history of Brazil and of Catholicism, there lives a cat, lives too much culture in the Library open to the public and there's a lot of art.

  • Whenever I can, I come to the Saint Benedict's monastery to watch the trade. Is the time when most feel close to God.

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.
