Discover the more quiet and human face of this fascinating city. On this tour you will get a different view of the third biggest capital of Brazil. This tour takes you to the Lower City where our principal destination is the peninsula of Itapagipe, completely surrounded by the calm waters of the bay and an oasis of peace at only 8 km from the busy harbour area. We visit the neighborhoods of Ribeira, with fantastic views on the Bay of All Saints and some small marinas with their schooners and sailboats. Then Bonfim, with the famous church of Nosso Senhor do Bonfim, an important place for pilgrimage where the syncretism between Catholicism and Candomblé still lives strongly. Finally Boa Viagem with the impressive Fort of Monte Serrat and the Ponta de Humaitá, the most romantic spot in Salvador because of the possibility to see one of the most wonderful sunsets of Brazil! On your choice we visit the swarming open market of São Joaquim or the Mercado Modelo, focused on souvenirs.
