  • I've never seen anything like it! The fair is a chaos, but that makes it unique! Things piled up, dusty, animals turn ebó, herbs for baths, typical foods, bike passing among the people. And look I got at the end! I heard a colleague say that Salvador San Joaquin fair represents the people of Bahia. And represents! Is genuine! A micro chaos, super worth it for those who like Carnival, people, be amazed! Oh, I recommend go with closed shoes.

  • It is one of the points of Salvador tourism or anything contaminated. Has a clean and clear Street with shops selling religious items and perpendicular alleys selling everything. Remembered a bazaar or Arab Moroccan market. As I've been in Morocco and in a lot of Arab countries, say they are different. More like mainland China. China and India not because Indians don't murder or mistreat animals. And there's the problem of this San Joaquin fair. The shops and booths that sell the poor animals for sacrifice. This gives a kind of mournful air. Pity, even respecting the creed. Other than that, go to this fair is an anthropological experience very interesting. The fair is very large, but it takes courage to explore the whole area, because the lanes are narrow, dark, tight corridors and half the class looks at you thinking "what's this guy doing here?". The locations outside say to be careful. Nothing I've seen from dangerous, but we must of course attention. I think it's worth the trip, if you have no problem seeing eventually locked up in a cage a pet suffering with the heat and with the prospect of being purchased, you understand.

  • 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!
  • Muito bom
  • Com os novos bares o happy hour de fim de tarde é imperdível.
  • To whom may come to Salvador you have to visit that market, it's a magical place.
  • A reforma tá arrumando a feira
