Salvador, Brazil

Pelourinho Neighborhood

No trip to Salvador would be complete without a tour through the historic Pelourinho neighborhood. This colonial plaza has a fraught history as a center of slave trade, but boasts an aesthetically pleasing collection of cobblestone streets, colorful storefronts, and intricate architecture. It’s a fascinating place to run, with a number of historical monuments and scenic views from hills overlooking the harbor. Feel free to get lost with a DIY route, or enjoy our mapped 5k route starting from the Elevador Lacerda. Pass top sights including the Catedral Basílica de Salvador, Palácio Rio Branco, the Igreja e Convento de São Francisco, and the Largo do Pelourinho square.
