Exclusive Shore Event: Bahia de Salvador | Candomblé, Creole Cooking, and Capoeira
The vibrant city of Salvador bears the distinction of being the first slave port in the Americas, and today it is the center of Afro-Brazilian culture. We'll start with a driving tour to discover this rich slice of Brazil, taking in the candomblé saint sculptures in Tororo Lake and the Fonte Nova soccer stadium. We'll make our way to the Afro-Brazilian Museum, which traces the West African origins of the city, and see the superb wooden sculpted panels of the orixs by Salvador's most celebrated artist, Carybé. We'll visit the Church of Our Lady of the Rosary, built with meager resources over a period of almost 100 years. It's located in Pelourinho Square-named after the whipping post that stood in its center. We'll also visit the intimate Bahian Gastronomy Museum, which focuses on the African influence on Bahia cuisine.
Our museum experience will come to life at Cuco Bistrô, where we will have a cachaa tasting and savor bold creole cuisine such as grilled curd cheese with plantain purée and sugarcane molasses, and fish stew with cashews and coconut. After, we'll make a quick stop at St. Francis church, a masterpiece of Brazilian baroque.
Bahia is also the rhythmic center of Afro-Brazilian music, and one of our day's highlights will be an immersive percussion workshop, where we'll try our hands at various local instruments. After the class we will take in a capoeira demonstration, and, after all this excitement, return to our ship.
Approximate Length: 7 hours
Suggested Attire: Light casual attire with comfortable walking shoes. Sunscreen/hats recommended. Flip flops and sandals should be avoided, as we will walk on uneven cobblestone streets.
