The Lower City tour offers another perspective of the sprawling city taking us to the quiet waters of the Itapagipe Peninsula where life moves at a slower pace than the bustling upper city. Fishermen fish from dug out canoes, locals collect 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 syncretised 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 with shrimp, black-eyed peas, red chilli pepper, onion and garlic.
