Tours | Jun 11 | 2020 | No Comment

Duration: 8 hours.

The tour starts in the modern suburb of Barra at the mouth of the Bay with its famous lighthouse. Then continue to the old historical section of town, the Pelourinho area with the largest and best preserved complex of colonial architecture in the Americas.

We stroll through the narrow, bustling streets lined with buildings in pastel shades of an age gone by, soaking in the sights and sounds of this vibrant city. We visit the church of São Francisco with it’s exuberant gold-leafed Baroque interior and the Pelourinho square, the heart of the old town.

A stop for lunch is made at a local restaurant, then continue to the lower city, at Itapagipe Peninsula with panoramic views of Vale Avenue and the traditional neighborhood of Ribeira, then a visit is made at the famous Senhor do Bonfim church. Continue to the Montserrat Fort, Boa Viagem beach, Lacerda elevator (a traditional monument of the city) and a quick stop for shopping at the Mercado Modelo, the largest craft center of Bahia.
