Salvador Points of Interest
As well as being a fun, lively city, Salvador also has a very rich cultural heritage. Plenty of beautiful churches and cathedrals, amazing architecture and museums attract both visitors and residents alike. Some of the best attractions include:
- São Francisco Church and Convent: Tour this lavish 18th century church to see ornate artworks, beautiful statues and grand furniture.
- Itaipava Arena Fonte Nova: This stadium has hosted the Olympic Games, World Cup matches as well as sold-out arena concerts.
- Pelourinho: With cobbled streets and coloured buildings, the picturesque and historic town centre is a lovely place to enjoy a cup of coffee or take a walk.
- Ponta do Humaita: A lovely spot with spectacular views of the city skyline over the water.
- Elevador Lacerda: The lift takes you to the top of this tower for undisturbed views of the entire city and water.
Beaches in Salvador
There are plenty of wonderful beaches in Salvador to suit any holidaymaker. Though a bit outside the city, Flamengo Beach is one of the prettiest and often very quiet. Similarly, to get to Ilha dos Frades, a remote beach on a nearby island, you’ll need to make it a day trip. It’s well worth it though; lush, green grass meets pure white sand and calm seas, while nearby trees provide shade. If you want to stay in the city, Farol da Barra is the closest and most popular. This little strip of sand lines the skyscrapers, so while it may not provide a peaceful, relaxed atmosphere, it’s very convenient and a lovely place to spend a day. Otherwise, Praia do Porto da Barra is another convenient option. This family-friendly beach offers snorkelling as well.
