Colors and Contrasts of Salvador Brasil
The costal city of Salvador de Bahia, also called Bahia for short by many locals, is the capital of Bahia and one of Brasil’s cultural highliths. With over 2 million people, this vibrant city has retained its African soul. Ornate churches still stand on cobblestone streets. Festivals are spontaneous, wild, popular and frequent. Candomblé services illuminate the hillsides. Capoeira and afoxé dance through the streets. The restoration of the historic center of Salvador has revitalized areas that were previously considered dangerous and largely off limits to tourists.
