Why Salvador? The city has an energy and unadorned beauty that very few cities can match. Its colourful centre is a living museum of 17th- and 18th-century architecture and gold-laden churches and the Pelourinho neighbourhood is a historic heart, with cobblestone alleys, large squares, colourful buildings and brilliant baroque churches. Wild festivals happen almost on the daily, with drum corps pounding out rhythms that are impossible not to move to. Elsewhere in town, a different spirit flows, there’s nowhere else in the world where the culture of those brought as slaves from Africa has been preserved so well as it has been here– from music and religion to food, dance and martial-arts traditions. And to top all of this, a gorgeous coastline lies right outside the city. Come and see its magnificence for yourself.
