This special tour of Salvador starts at the Santo Antonio Fortress, Barra's Lighthouse, and pass by residential and commercial points of the city, before arriving at Dique do Tororo, where beautiful sculptures of the Orixas (African Dieties) can be seen and the most popular areas of the city.

The tunnel Americo Simas links the lower and upper cities and the harbour and we now continue onto the lower city, passing by the areas of Calcada, Largo dos Mares and as far as Bonfim Church - the symbol of the Bahians' faith. We tour the Mercado Sao Joaquim and visit Mont-Serrat, where you can watch the city.

After lunch you will head to the Porto da Barra - the mark of the foundation of Salvador - and continue towards the famous Pelourinho district, with its narrow cobbled streets lined with fine colonial houses painted in pastel shades. These stand as a reminder of a bygone era when Salvador was at the height of its glory in the 18th Century. The Municipal Square is reached via Lacerda's Elevator, from where you will have a wonderful view of All Saints' Bay. We will see the Praca da Se and Terreiro de Jesus squares and their fine colonial architecture and we finish at Sao Franciso, the golden baroque church, and the Cathedral.
