Brazil - Bahia (Chapter)
This is the Bahia chapter from Lonely Planet’s Brazil guidebook.
Africa meets South America in the staggeringly beautiful northeastern state of Bahia. The heady blend of two seemingly disparate cultures – classic Portuguese architecture and African drum beats, Catholic churches and Candomblé (Afro-Brazilian religion) – is unique, and for most travelers, truly intoxicating.
