    For those who like churches, like me, also worth knowing. I was lucky and I arrived in time to mass and I could hear the beautiful Gregorian chants. It's not the most beautiful Monasteries of St. Benedict I met, but worth the visit.

    Easy location, and worth the visit. It is very beautiful and not so disclosed. Have a janitor who's proud to tell every detail of the history of that place. Worth knowing.

    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.
