This is a historic neighborhood from the Portuguese Colonial Period, symbolizing the lives of the African slaves residing here. Pelourinho was named after the whipping post on which many slaves were punished. It is now used as a cultural center, through which tourists can walk through to restaurants, shops, cafes, and witness some musical performances as well.
