Web series travels through Salvador showing experiences with the eyes of the people of Salvador
Close your eyes and calmly list your unforgettable memories lived in Salvador. Then, imagine yourself getting to know places you’ve never been and that you would like to visit. In the list, add a beautiful sunset, a delicious moqueca and a cultural space that you visited, loved and where you want to return. After months in social isolation, having to reinvent yourself and adapting to a new normal, what do you intend to accomplish, discover or experience?
Traveling is one of life’s greatest pleasures, but have you ever traveled within your own city? If you are not from here, imagine taking walks with the eyes of the people of Salvador. Visit Salvador da Bahia invites you to stroll through the unknown corners and the classic places only known by those who live here. We will take you through this city that “insists on what is beautiful”, land of great encounters, of ancestry, of all rhythms and creeds.
With this in mind, the City of Salvador, through the Secretariat of Culture and Tourism (SECULT), is launching the Salvador by Soteropolitanos campaign. The project consists of six-episode web series bringing immersive experiences and stories from residents who experience Salvador intensely.
The films bring a poetic language, real characters and many tips on how to get to know Salvador with a different view. Scripts for each episode were also produced with all the important information, facilitating your future tour. The campaign will be published here on the website salvadordabahia.com and on Instagram @visitsalvadordabahia. Salvador by Soteropolitanos is produced by the Usina Digital agency, in partnership with the Mandinga production company.
What you can expect
The year 2020 marked our lives in different ways. Of the many lessons of the pandemic, having a more responsible look at what is around us was of great importance.
This is what the Salvador by Soteropolitanos webseries is about: small great daily experiences. We toured several locations such as Pelourinho, Barra, Itapuã, the Lower City, Rio Vermelho and Subúrbio, meeting people and their relationship with the city and, thus, discovering (or rediscovering) this beautiful Salvador.
You will also discover bike paths and public spaces that are great for outdoor walks, hidden restaurants, a Gothic church in the Lower City and beaches with calm and crystalline waters in Subúrbio. You will visit cultural spaces in Rio Vermelho, experience the traditions of Itapuã … but, what we really want is to inspire you and make sure, after watching, you take your mask and your 70 ° alcohol and go out exploring the city.
With the covid-19 pandemic, the capital of Bahia has been adapting to this new normal. During the tours, visitors should pay attention to the use of the mask, 70º alcohol and keep a safe distance from other people. Call ahead before visiting the places and find out about the security protocols to avoid contamination.
