SALVADOR DA BAHIA
Salvador is the capital of Bahia, a historical and magical place on the eastern coast of Brazil–an enchanting center of food, crafts, lush beaches, colonial architecture and effervescent population whose African heritage shows strongly in their culture and their lives. It was in Bahia that Brazil first developed, became rich, and blossomed as a country. Bahia is the place which better describes Brazil, for it brings in its people, its environment and in its soul, reflections of history and of the most authentic African culture. Bahia is the heart of Brazil. Bahia lives the happiness, magic and sensuality of its people. A land that lives in the mystery and cultural wealth from the art of capoeira, the songs of the fishermen, the candomble, smiles, sweetness, intelligence, friendliness, the taste for life and so many other beautiful things.
