Discover the city of Salvador
The city was born as a protagonist of the country: in 1549 it was declared the first capital of Brazil. Of course, the location was strategic for Europeans – but there is no doubt that the natural beauty also conquered the seafarers. It is still difficult not to be impressed by the landscape of the northern beaches, such as Itapuã, immortalized by Dorival Caymmi, Vinicius de Moraes and Toquinho, or even the central shore, where Praia da Barra is famous for its lighthouse. More than nature, man made Salvador a special place, in the beauty of historic buildings, museums, gastronomy and hospitality.
