Enjoy this guided city tour of Salvador, home to beautiful Baroque-style architecture. After pick up from the hotels, we head to Santo Antonio da Barra Fort, built in 1536 to protect the Bay of All Saints. 162 years later it gained a lighthouse to guide the boats coming to the coast, the "Farol da Barra", which still works to the present day. Then we will pass the Vitória Corridor, Largo do Campo Grande (one of the circuits of the carnival), and 7 de Setembro Avenue. From there we will continue our tour to the Pelourinho (Historic Center of Salvador), stopping at Municipal Square which has a panoramic view of the Lower City (Lacerda Elevator, Commerce, Salvador Harbor and Mercado Modelo) and stop at Sé Square, a place that keeps ruins of the first Basilica of Brazil located next to Salvador's first Archbishop's Palace. We continue the City Tour towards Largo do Pelourinho, where there is the Rosário dos Pretos Church and the Jorge Amado House Foundation. We head to the São Francisco Church and Convent, considered one of the most unique and rich expressions of Brazilian Baroque. Then we will have a stop for a delicious optional lunch buffet with tasty local food (not included).
After lunch we will start the panoramic tour through the Lacerda Elevator and Modelo Market with stop for shopping.
