Stop at various places to photograph the daily life of the Favelas and Candomblé. Enjoy stunning views of many of Salvador´s sites and explore the culture through the history.
Salvador is a city that holds that largest black population outside the African continent, and hence it is known as Black Rome. It has preserved as part of its historical legacy an intense African-Amerindian religiosity.
The city safeguards charms and mysteries, hidden in magnificent places that our customers will have the opportunity to visit through this itinerary, carefully prepared in order to demystify erroneous notions and impressions disseminated over several centuries about religions of African origin in the world.
The route begins in the Afro-Brazilian museum which, through its collection, narrates the history of enslaved Africans and the transatlantic trade, and the ebb and flow of enslaved peoples and their identities.
The artifacts come from several regions of the African continent, allowing us to understand the countless intellectual, artistic, cultural and religious manifestations of these peoples in Brazil.
We will visit the Pierre Verger Foundation, the French anthropologist responsible for developing literary and photographic records of the history of slavery, and extensive audio visual documentation. We will get to know a maroon community, places that served as a haven for black people and their African gods during the colonial and post-abolition periods in Brazil.
Soon after, we will get to know a Candomblé terreiro from the ewe-fon a nation of daomeniana origin, and have the opportunity to consult the sacred oracle (optional activity - extra cost). As we walk through the streets, our clients will see the urban and cultural development of a slum originated from a maroon community, in the company of guide from the community, who is initiated in these traditions and knowledgeable of these historical processes.
