What to Expect
The Baroque architectural complex known as Pelourinho, listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and characterized by houses and churches that date back to the 18th century, is an exuberant expression of the grandeur of European colonization.
In this historical scenario, an event known as Tuesday's blessings has been celebrated for over 60 years, in order to ensure the preservation of the musical identity of Bahia, the cradle of Brazilian musicality.
In the streets of Pelourinho, these musical forms are manifested as a form of resistance, present in the beating of drums and on the faces of each citizen that joins that festivity. After the Catholic Mass celebrated in consonance with elements of religions of African origin in the Church of Our Lady of the Rosary of Blacks, in honor of Saint Anthony, the streets of Pelourinho sing and dance in honor of Ogun, who is the African god and patron saint of black liberation army.
On this tour, you will have the unparalleled opportunity to experience these religious and cultural manifestations, inspired by the sound that comes from every corner of Pelourinho's streets and squares.
Did you get hungry? Local commerce offers a variety of dishes and delicacies of our African-European cultural heritage in bars, restaurants and street tents. You will experience the worldwide famous Bahian hospitality.
