What you can expect

Experience together with us this special Anthropological Tour!

It s the day dedicated to learn the most authentic of Salvador of Bahia, the Brazil s both place, symbol of strength and survival of Africans in this land when they were treated as commodities under the oppression of slavery.

Learn and watch the fair, colourful life and history of the city.

The city of Salvador safeguards in its daily life, African traditions that have been preserved in maroon community havens through centuries. In this itinerary, our client will have the opportunity to experience this magic energy present in this legacy of freedom struggles, and struggles to preserve the religious traditions of people in Bahia.

We will begin the tour in the historic region Salvador, considered by Unesco as a world heritage site, the renowned Pelourinho. This visit includes the afro Brazilian museum, which assembles a rich collection of the history of black people. We then proceed to the railway suburbs, and observe the urban landscape changes that have occurred in of territories of enslaved descendent communities.

We will visit the largest open market in the city, also listed as an intangible heritage of brazil, the são joaquim fair, founded by enslaved africans in the XIX century. Next we visit the old port of arrival of Africans and a slave market, followed by a visit to the first candomble terreiro of yoruba origin founded in the new world, the matriarchy grounded terreiro ivondun zoo.

In conclusion, we will visit the queen of the sea house, located by the beach Rio vermelho, at a fishermen community that built an altar in reverence to that african divinity from the sea, the orixá iemanjá. Every year, on February 2nd, the greatest ceremony offered in honour of an African orixa, which gathers up over 400.000 people. We may also enjoy the opportunity of having lunch in a black community, in the company of a family with over 50 years of tradition, which will serve us the famous feijoada (home-made bean stew) in the garcia district.
