It’s a safe place for everyone. You can come here and enjoy the night. The place is hot like the samba. So came with summer clothes.

Live music, dancing, drums, food... everything for fun at your disposition. Salgueiro is not one of the biggest Scolas de samba, but the people who support it are filled with energy and help you make the best out of this experience!
