Experience together with us the special Wednesday, is the day dedicated to Xango, the patron of the community , the thunder god of justice, symbol of strength and survival of Africans in this land, when they were treated as commodities under the oppression of slavery. Experiencing this colorful ceremony is a must do when in Salvador!

Visiting Salvador allows us to experience the legacy of its ancestral peoples and the presence of African gods who also made the voyage from Africa into Brazilian lands. This is the city that smells like palm oil, reverencing and preserving the traditions of the African continent.


This religious itinerary consists of a daytime visit to a Candomblé terreiro. Our clients will experience the daily life of a Candomblé community, and their faith as members of this religion that worships the Orixas. Wednesday is the day dedicated to Xango, the patron of this house and the community, the thunder god of justice, symbol of strength and survival of Africans in this land, when they were treated as commodities under the oppression of slavery. They evoked Xangô for protection in the freedom struggle. We will witness the offering of a ceremonial dish (amala), and we may partake in this special moment of axé, or vital energy, as we feast with the god king.


Our client will have the opportunity to grasp the power of black women, the high priestesses of this tradition. They have historically played a fundamental role in the preservation of cultures and religions traditions of African matrix. Besides experiencing this religious rite, we will visit the physical space of the terreiro, and the adjacent museum that chronicles the historical trajectory of this community.

We will get acquainted with the local school run by this religious community, which aims to reclaim in their pedagogical practices the history and culture of African peoples and their descendants. This terreiro also manages a weaving enterprise that produces religious clothing and ornaments. Concluding this itinerary, we will pay a visit to the largest public fair in the city, listed as an intangible heritage of Brazil by UNESCO, which was founded by enslaved Africans in the nineteenth century, the largest market of the religious community in Bahia.
