Panoramic Salvador Half Day City Tour

Summary

Following pickup at your hotel, meet your local guide and head to Dique do Tororó to see the Bahian artist Tati Moreno's Orixás and see the Fonte Nova football stadium. The stadium is home to Esporte Club Bahia and hosted games for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Travel to the Lower City section of Salvador, with a stop at the Baroque Senhor do Bonfim Catholic church, built in the 1700s and now a pilgrimage site for many Bahians. Your next stop is the Forte de Mont Serrat, an example of the military primitive style of architecture from the 1600s that provides panoramic city views. Then visit the Mercado Modelo craft market to browse for authentic Bahian handicrafts and souvenirs to take home. Your last stop is at the Lacerda Elevator, a structure built to connect the lower city financial center with the port and market of Salvador. It was built in 1873, and was the first elevator in the country. At the end of your comprehensive 4-hour sightseeing tour of the “Happy City” of Salvador, enjoy drop-off at your hotel.
