Salvador - Bahia

 

Salvador is the capital city of the state of Bahia, and was the Brazilian capital until 1763. It is the Brazil's oldest settlement, which dates back to the early 16th century. For over two centuries, Salvador was the first major port of the colonial Brazil.

The old city (Historic Center) is built on two levels, the lower on the waterfront and the upper on a cliff about 200 feet high.
