Go. It is nice. Be careful with belongings. There are stories about kids taken them and running. well conserved and lots of art and crafts to buy.
Place visited by tourists, but currently is desired in order to have not maintained the heritage and find it very trashed. Place to be viditado quickly just because you have a lot of history, film Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands, Olodum, poultry and etc..
Be prepared to see the real Salvador on this place. The culture on this place is beautiful and is like a long time ago. But it't really dirty, smells horribly and it's a dangerous place to go alone or without knowing it well. Tip: stay on the main roads!

Such a beautiful hidden gem in Salvador. One minute you are walking down a pretty side street, the next thing you know it opens up to this gorgeous valley of color and stunning architecture.
Pelourinho was a very pretty but small (hence the inho in the name) area of Salvador. It was one of the few bright spots in an otherwise "not worth the trip to" city. Praia de Futuro was also another nice spot and the Igracia de Bom Fims is a very popular destination too. True story - on my birthday, yes... More
Nice place with a lot of restaurants, bars and a good vision for the "cidade baixa"! We enjoy and love it!
