Back to Salvador’s cultural life

The capital of Bahia has a diverse cultural life, and if you are looking to take a tour of the history of Salvador and Bahia, museums and cultural facilities are excellent suggestions. After months of closed doors due to the covid-19 pandemic, some of these places are open again. This is a good way to start making up for lost time in everyday life in Salvador.

But if you prefer the outdoors, especially with the children, the family can plan to visit the public parks of Salvador. Most of them have already been reopened for visitation.

Check the hours of operation below and remember to follow the necessary safety protocols, such as wearing a mask and avoiding crowding, to reduce the risk of contamination of the covid-19.
