Many travelers who have once visited the Brazilian city of El Salvador, will never forget the atmosphere of happiness and joy reigning in it. The Brazilian city has no equal in the number of festivals, carnivals and incendiary parties. It is not surprising that this is the city where the most colorful street decoration takes place. Since ancient times, the facades of houses here are usually painted in bright colors, which makes the appearance of strict historical structures simply inimitable.
For tourists the so-called "Upper City" is the most interesting. It is here that the most beautiful historical streets with colonial mansions are located. A significant part of the historical buildings today are occupied by government institutions, and in some buildings interesting museums have been opened. The historical district of El Salvador is also interesting for its unique Lacerda ski lift. It connects the upper and lower levels of the city. The lift was built in 1869 and is also considered a unique historical landmark.
In addition to the historic district of Pelourinho with its luxurious colorful mansions, guests of the city can also visit many incredible sights. The city has many beautiful cathedrals and churches, including the beautiful Cathedral and the elegant Rosario church, which was built in the 18th century. An excursion program should include a visit to local museums and the colorful Mercado Modelo Market, where you can buy a lot of unique souvenirs. Next - Lima
