Most parts of this city are 400 or 500 years old, so it really is like stepping into a living museum. The colonial feel highlights the country’s close links to Africa, reflected in the local cuisine and music. The town is famous also for capoeira, the ballet-like martial art.
Accommodation in Salvador
This bijoux property fits in perfectly to the historical surroundings, a 19th century building in bright yellow, set against the backdrop of the UNESCO Heritage neighbourhood of Pelhourinho. Ten rooms keep the place intimate, and you’re not far from the amazing beaches of Salvador.
The history of the Portuguese Spice Route is the inspiration for this wonderful boutique hotel. Each room reflects a different stop in the route – Calcutta, Mozambique, Timor, and more. The rooftop terrace has two Jacuzzis and a small pool and the restaurant is one of the best in town.
