    This can be just another market, as another reviewer noted, but what "got me" is that this is the place most Candomble practitioners go to get their offering animals, candles, and even costumes. This ...  more »

    We went to see another type of 'market' really is a crazy experience going through there and enter. They have all kinds of fruit and vegetables. The beef sector is really disgusting, has a horrible smell. Everything in general is very dirty and seems even dangerous. Prices are very good, but should be encouraged. I recommend dare only if they go and return by taxi. It is 5 minutes from the market model. You can do everything in half a day.

    Worth knowing. This is a market where they sell everything. Too big and tight. Mixed animals, food, fruit, pepper, candomblé. Watch bags and go with some cozy clothes.

    Maybe one of the best places to visit in town. That's is raw Bahia as you can only see in Pierre Verger's pictures or in Jorge Amado's books. This is where baianos go for shopping. It's very cheap but don't expect to find a clean market. This one is dirty. And still beautiful. Absolutely worth it!

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.
