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. (visit). We continue to the Monserrat district with
its panoramic view of the city and on to the Mercado Modelo, a thriving market
for local goods and souvenirs. This is also where you can test your bargaining
talents! This tour is a complement to the Historical city tour. Please note that the Church of Bonfim is closed on Mondays.

Stop for Acarajé tasting. During the tour we will stop at a well-known food stand to taste one of the most famous Bahian street food the Acaraje: deep fried rolls prepared
