  1. Visita Barra:
    Enjoy a walk  in Barra, the beautiful neighborhood where Brazillink is located. Here you can see Barra’s lighthouse (Farol da Barra), the first lighthouse to be built in America. It is also possible to visit the Nautical museum of Bahia (Museu nautico da Bahia), which is inside the building, and see the great view of the Bahia de Todos os Santos. 
     There are many beaches in Barra. The most famous is the Porto da Barra Beach, located between Forte Santa Maria and Forte São Diogo (they are both interesting touristic attractions where you can see periodically art exhibitions), in a walk distance from Farol da Barra. In that beach you can swim in its calm waters, rent a board or a kayak, take diving lessons and much more. Also you can visit the Igreja Santo Antônio da Barra, a church that it is situated in the Av. Sete de Setembro, at the ladeira da barra.
    Barra is a great place to see the sunset, which is incredibly beautiful seen from pretty much anywhere along the sea side.
    Visit Ondina:
    Ondina is the neighborhood between Barra and Rio Vermelho, it is another beautiful place. You can see many beaches along the sea side, enjoy the bike lane and its great view. Ondina is where the main campus of the Federal University of Bahia is located, it’s a good place to relax, read a book, study at its library or just take a walk. Also in Ondina you can find Salvador’s zoo. The zoo is considered a reference in preservation of wild animals belonging to the Brazilian fauna and  threatened by extinction.

  2. Visit Rio Vermelho

    Rio Vermelho (Red River) is the heart of bohemia in Salvador. This neighborhood is famous for its bars and pubs, as well as its parties and culture. Rio Vermelho is the perfect place to chill, have a beer and enjoy the Bahian culinary, its possible try one of the most famous and delicious Acarajé from Salvador, in the Largo de Santana, or sit at a bar at the Mercado do peixe (fish market), or at Largo da Mariquita. There are also famous beaches in Rio Vermelho like Praia da paciência, a nice beach to relax, and Buracão Beach where is important to take special care with the ocean due its really strong waves and undertow.
     Rio Vermelho is also famous for its cultural events. There is where one of the most famous popular parties of the city takes place. The “Iemanjá day” happens every year on February 2th. This party is to celebrate the queen of the seas from the afro-brazilians religions and it became a huge event in our city. The Iemanjá’s house is open to visit every day, it’s a little house by the beach where people pray and bring gifts for the queen, and it is possible to visit at almost any time. Also there are museums and churches you can visit in Rio Vermelho. Another interesting place to visit is the Casa do Rio Vermelho, Jorge Amado’s house.
