Welcome to Sankofa Tours
da Bahia, often abbreviated to Salvador by Brazilians, is the capital of
Bahia state and one of Brazil's cultural higlights. This city has managed to retain its African soul and
develop its unique, vibrant culture - the best of its colonial legacy.
Ornate churches still stand on cobblestone streets. Festivals are
spontaneous, wild, popular and frequent. Candomblé services illuminate
the hillsides. Capoeira and afoxé dance through the streets.
In no other region in the world outside
Africa, the Black heritage has been
cultivated and blossomed as here. Salvador with its preserved colonial
past, colors, flavors, churches, and spontaneous parties on the streets
is something like nothing you've seen before.
