Brazil Salvador Pelourinho during the June festival2

Tropical Salvador is home to plenty of gorgeous coastline, but it is the city’s Afro-Brazilian culture that attracts visitors. Here, believers reconnect with African gods in Candomble ceremonies, rhythmic music pulses from weekly festivals and the cuisine is sharpened with plenty of hot chilli. Once Brazil’s first capital, modern Salvador is youthful, energetic and unmissable.
