State of Bahia

4.2
Beaches · Churches · Landmarks
In the early 16th century, original Portuguese explorers landed on the coastline of today's State of Bahia, a northeastern region where South America meets Africa. The mix of these two disparate cultures remains one of the main reasons to take a trip to State of Bahia, though a growing number of tourists also come for a chance to see protected sea turtle nesting grounds, hike to dramatic waterfalls, and spot whales along the coastline. National parks top most State of Bahia itineraries, serving as quiet and largely unspoiled wilderness areas that offer a peek into what most of Brazil looked like when the first Europeans arrived. Start your State of Bahia tour in state capital Salvador, a colonial-era city known for its attractive churches and cobblestoned streets.
