Salvador Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

The capital of the state of Bahia, the coastal city of Salvador is one of the most interesting attractions in Brazil. Notable for its large carnival which, according to some, can rival the fun of its counterpart in Rio de Janeiro, as well as its strong African heritage and many cultural and natural riches, the city has plenty to keep a visitor entertained. These are three of Salvador’s most interesting attractions:

  • Pelourinho. Also known simply as the Historical Center, Pelourinho (or Pelo) is Salvador’s most famous district. A world heritage site, it is home to landmarks such as the Cathedral of Salvador, the Archaeology and Ethnology Museum, and the 18th century Palace of Saldanha. Pelourinho is also considered one of the safest areas in Salvador and can be relatively safely explored on foot, especially during the day, although it’s obviously important to still keep your wits about you. 
  • Afro-Brazilian Museum. A large port city on the Atlantic Ocean, Salvador is inextricably linked with its African heritage — up to almost 80% of the city’s inhabitants are at least partially descended from the African slaves brought to the area. Known as MAFRO and also located in Pelourinho, this museum celebrates the city’s and country’s African roots via collections on Afro-Brazilian art, traditions, and culture.
  • Beaches. The public beaches of Salvador are no doubt one of the main attractions of the city. The highlight among them is Porto da Barra Beach — quite possibly the most famous Brazilian beach outside of Rio de Janeiro, it is known for its tranquil waters, busy atmosphere, historic landmarks (it was the first place in Salvador that was settled by the Europeans), and surrounding forts. There are a number of other beautiful beaches, but do some research before visiting as sadly not every coastal area of the city can be considered completely safe.
