1/46.- Salvador Tourist Information Welcome to Salvador da Bahia, Brazil!
Salvador da Bahia, or São Salvador da Baía de Todos os Santos, is the capital of the Brazilian state of Bahia. The city is located on the northeast coast of Brazil.
Salvador da Bahia, or Bahia, was founded in 1549 , and was the capital of Brazil for more than 200 years (17th and 18th centuries). In its historical center you will find a group of churches and colonial houses that deserved the recognition of the UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
The local government with international help, is making an extraordinary effort to restore its colonial center. The pastel colors of its houses, its colonial churches, its people and its blue skies make of Salvador da Bahia one of the most beautiful cities that I have had the pleasure of visiting.
On the following pages I will give you a sneak preview of Salvador. As you will see its historical center is quite unique.
