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.
Rio was more chilled out because our host took us to the more relaxed blocos whereas Salvador was a bit more hectic as its the biggest street party in the world. They were different in their own ways and I couldn’t advise which is best, but either way stay with a Couchsurfing host to get the best experience.
