Mapper » South America » Brazil » Salvador

 

Salvador is the capital of the state of Bahia, in northeastern Brazil, and the third largest city in the country.

Founded in 1549, Salvador was the center of the slave trade – a legacy that remains today in its large black population and cultural traditions, including its own distinctive music.

Salvador’s historic core, known as Pelourinho, is renowned for its Portuguese colonial architecture with historical monuments dating from the 17th to the 19th centuries, and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Surrounding Salvador, Bahia’s long coastline, beautiful beaches and cultural traditions make it one of Brazil’s chief tourist destinations. Nearby Itaparica island is a popular getaway.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
