Profile: Rio Vermelho

While in Rio Vermelho, in Salvador's southern zone, visit Santana Square, which features Our Lady of Santana Church and beckons you to mingle amongst the local fishermen. Indulge in such local fare as cold beer and “acarajés” and inhale the bracing sea air while enjoying the expansive views.

Rio Vermelho is popular with locals and tourists alike for the traditional Festa da Yemenjá that takes place every year on February 2. Early morning, a charming procession begins with boats carrying presents, like perfumes and soaps, which are then presented to the Candomblé’s goddess to ensure good fishing all year round.

    a great place to stay!

    Everything was wonderful-the neighborhood is safe and fun with good restaurants and close to beach. The breakfast delicious, the room fine and comfortable. It is very pretty. Wagner at the front desk was helpful and delightful. The ladies in the kitchen were warm and friendly. The only difficult part was the keys- very confusing.

    Charmosa e confortável com excelente localização.

    O Hotel se situa num casarão lindo e muito bem mantido a minutos dos melhores pontos turísticos de Praia Vermelha (se pode fazer tudo a pé). O quarto é enorme, muito confortável e arejado, com varanda. Cama, colchão, lençóis e travesseiros de excelente qualidade. Funcionários são muito cordiais e prestativos. Excelente café-da-manhã. Excelente localização. Tudo perfeito!

    Lindo casarão.

    A localização é ótima e o casarão é lindo! Falta um pouco mais de modernidade nos quartos o que algumas reformas simples poderiam ajudar.
