Pelourinho, Salvador / Bahia / Brasil

When I search about the information about this place.
I tell myself , "YES, I LOVE THIS PLACE".

Salvador is a city on the northeast coast of Brazil and the capital of the northeastern Brazilian State of Bahia. The city was for a long time also known as Bahia, and appears under that name (or as Salvador da Bahia).

Pelourinho is the historic square in the heart of the old city of Salvador. It is the center of a remarkable colorful colonial buildings, cobblestone streets, renewal of art and culture. Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, it is now home to groups who reclaim their African heritage through music, dance, drums and art.
