What is Salvador Bahia known for?
Founded in 1549 on a small peninsula that separates Todos os Santos Bay from the Atlantic Ocean on the northeast coast of Brazil, Salvador de Bahia became Portuguese America’s first capital and remained so until 1763. Its founding and historic role as colonial capital associate it with the theme of world exploration.
Is Salvador Bahia worth visiting?
Salvador is not one of the safest places in Brazil to visit. While it’s absolutely worth a visit, you do have to be vigilant about your safety. Be especially careful if you are out at night, and stay close to your hotel. If you want to head out for the night, stay in a group of friends and don’t go out alone.
