SALVADOR

Salvador de Bahia is famous for its African influenced cuisine, music, and architecture. Salvador, known as the “Capital of Joy” thanks to its extravagant, weeklong Carnival celebrations, is full of music and contemporary art and architecture that haven’t changed since the XVII century. The African influence has left its mark on local folklore, especially with the capoeira and maculele dance styles.
