What to Expect What to Expect

The baroque architectural complex known as Pelourinho, listed by UNESCO as World Heritage Site, is characterized by houses and churches that date back to the 18th century. Pelourinho is an exuberant expression of the grandeur of European colonization, which had slavery as its counterpoint.
In this historical scenario, an event known as Tuesday's Blessings has been celebrated for over 60 years to ensure the preservation of Bahia's musical identity, known as the cradle of Brazilian musicality.
In the streets of Pelourinho, these musical forms are manifested as a form of resistance, presented in the beating of drums and on the faces of each citizen that joins that festivity. The streets of Pelourinho sing and dance in honor of Ogun, who is the African God and patron saint of black liberation army. This tradition began after the Catholic Mass celebrated in consonance with elements of religions of African origin in honor of Saint Anthony and in the Church of Our Lady of the Rosary of Blacks.
Tour guests will have the unparalleled opportunity to experience these religious and cultural manifestations, inspired by the sound that comes from every corner of Pelourinho's streets and squares. Particpants let their bodies and minds travel in this magic that permeates time and space.
Hungry? Local commerce offers a variety of dishes and delicacies of African-European cultural heritage in bars, restaurants and street tents. Feel the worldwide famous Bahian hospitality and experience unique moments you will forever treasure in your memory.
Sights to visit:
Pelourinho Historical downtown area
Our Lady of the Rosary of Black People Church

A thrilling experience to connect with the relatively little-known Black experience in the Americas. It was exciting. There could be no better guide than tour guide Jorge Hage. Connecting with him on the first day and first night for the Pelourinho Tour by Night was a great adventure. He became more of a friend than a guide on an exciting night that took us on a whirlwind of adventure of Salvador by night. We participated in the mass celebrating Blessed Tuesday and from there explored all that the historic center of Pelourinho had to offer. By the time we landed in the Odoya restaurant for dinner, it was mission accomplished. Jorge gave us the insight and knowledge to later strike out on our own for further adventures in the week that proved culturally stimulating and exciting. It's easy to be intimidated by the crowd of strangers milling all over the historical district, but the presence of armed police all over provides that sense of security. At the end of the day, you find out everyone is just out for a night of fun in the wide open center.
