This is a gallery of our favorite photographs from Salvador, Bahia. Enjoy! The coconuts, fruit, and chicken are ceramics...gorgeous, aren't they?
If you'd like to read a fascinating book about the berimbau (the iconic percussion instrument photographed below), don't miss Eric Galm's "Berimbau, Soul of Brazilian Music."
For travel tips and inside info on this cultural treasure, visit the Salvador online guide on Férias Brasil (in Portuguese).
