The capital of Brazil's Bahia State, Salvador boasts a languid tropical climate, miles of pristine beaches and lush tropical vegetation. The city is also home to over 165 churches and the densest concentration of Baroque architecture in Latin America. Little wonder that this former capital of Brazil, founded in 1549, was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Built in 1745 on Salvador's Itapagipe Peninsula, this church attracts thousands of pilgrims every year.
The city's craft market is a warren of shops and narrow alleys surrounding the restored customhouse.
