The streets of Central Salvador will take you back to the beginnings of Brazil.

After hotel pick-ups, this tour heads to Santo Antonio da Barra Fort, built in 1536 to protect the Bay of All Saints.  162 years later it gained a lighthouse to guide the boats coming to the coast, the "Farol da Barra," which still operates today (photo stop 15 minutes).  Then visit Sao Diogo Fort, from where you have an incredible view of All Saints Bay (10 minute stop).  The tour will pass the Corridor of Vitoria, Largo do Campo Grande and 7 de Setembro Avenue.  Next it's on to the Pelourinho (Historic Center of Salvador), stopping at Municipal Square which has a panoramic view of the Lower City (Lacerda Elevator, Commerce, Salvador Harbor and Mercado Modelo) and stop at Se Square, a place with ruins of the first Basilica of Brazil located next to Salvador's first Archbishop's Palace.  You'll then head toward Largo do Pelourinho, where there is the Rosario dos Pretos Church and the Jorge Amado House Foundation.  Then there's a 30 minute stop at the Sao Francisco Church and Convent, considered one of the most unique and rich expressions of Brazilian Baroque architecture (entrance fee - not included in tour price - is BRL 5.00).  After that stop, the bus takes you back to your hotel.
