    Salvador, Brazil's former capital and fifth largest city in the country, is situated on a high bluff that circles around the eastern side of the magnificent All Saints Bay.

Their rich cultural heritage is evident in their music, dance, cuisine and religion. This provides a contrast to the city's Portuguese colonial past dating to 1549 with the permanent occupation of Brazil by the Portuguese. Read more about Salvador, Brazil
