Salvador City Tour

The Lower City tour offers another perspective of the sprawling city, taking you to the quiet waters of the Itapagipe Peninsula where life moves at a slower pace than the bustling Upper City.

Fishermen fish from dugout canoes, locals collect shellfish at low tide, schooners lie at anchor, all protected by the famous Bonfim church, one of the most important churches of pilgrimage in Brazil and deeply syncretised with the Candomblé.

Visit the Dique de Tororo Lake, which is famous for the statues of Orixás (Candomblé spirits that are protectors and guides between humans and God). Continue to the Monserrat district with its panoramic view of the city and on to the Mercado Modelo, a thriving market for local artefacts and souvenirs.
