Salvador de Bahia: a journey through the colours of Carnival

The historic center of Salvador de Bahia is the perfect starting point to reach La Barra, the district famous for its particular location, where parades of floats and concerts organized in huge trucks - that’s it! - await you, to then discover Campo Grande. It is a boulevard where the parades of floats continue accompanied by traditional music, while a group of Filhos de Gandhy - pacifists dressed in white and blue - spray perfume as a sign of good luck. So, what about experiencing Salvador during the Carnival?

Between Capoeira steps and colonial architecture
