Salvador and the Bahia Coast Sights

Fodor's Review

A steep 6-km (4-mile) cobblestone road connects the BA 142 highway with the village of Igatú, a former boomtown of the 19th century where the faded ruins of hundreds of abandoned mansions surround contemporary pastel cottages. A pretty museum, Galeria Arte e Memoria, combines contemporary art with relics, while at the Mina Brejo-Veruga, you can venture into what was once the area's largest diamond mine.
