Fodor's Review

This wide plaza lined with 17th-century houses sits in the heart of historic Salvador. Where nobles once strolled under imperial palm trees, there's a crafts fair on weekends. In the afternoons, a group of locals practice capoeira—a stylized dance-like fight with African origins—to the sound of the berimbau, a bow-shape musical instrument.
