Panoramic Tour Description
The Lower City: Another Perspective
In a city known for its contrasts, no contrast is more obvious than Salvador’s geography. The Cidade Alta (Upper City or Historical Center) lies perched atop a 70-meter cliff, while the Cidade Baixa (Lower City) encompasses the original financial district and outlying suburbs. This part of the city is very different in feel and content from the Upper City.
The Lower City tour offers another perspective of the sprawling city, passing the Tororo Lagoon with the imposing statues of the candomblé orixas in mid-lake, and the towering Arena Fonte Nova football stadium built for the World Cup. From here we drive us to the quiet waters of the Itapagipe Peninsula where life moves at a slower pace than at the bustling upper city. Fishermen fish from dugout canoes, locals collect shellfish at low tide, schooners lie at anchor, all protected by the famous Bonfim church, one of the most important churches of pilgrimage in Brazil and deeply syncretized with the Candomblé. We stop en route at the iconic Sorveteria da Ribeira ice cream parlor offering a myriad of tropical fruit sorbets since 1931. We continue to the Monserrat district with its panoramic view of the bay and city beyond and on to the Mercado Modelo, a thriving market for local artifacts and souvenirs. This is also where you can test your bargaining talents!
