Salvador Brazil History
This week in Bahia was a beating heart - a beating heart for the city of Salvador, Brazil's capital. Here is a look back at some of the most important events in the history of this city, from beginning to end.
Salvador was one of the largest cities in the New World before the American Revolution. In 1763 the capital was transferred to Rio de Janeiro and Salvador was refounded as a city.
Today Salvador is the third largest city in Brazil and has only begun to move forward in recent decades. As the first capital of Brazil, it is considered the soul of the country and the birthplace of Brazilian culture. Rio de Janeiro was already the third most populous city in the country when it was given the title in 1763. It is one of the oldest cities in America and with over 1.5 million inhabitants it is home to the most people in Brazil.
As the first capital of Brazil between 1549 and 1763, Salvador da Bahia experienced the fusion of European, African and American cultures. It is home to some of the most famous artists, musicians, writers, artists and musicians in the world.
Salvador is one of the richest and largest cities in Brazil and claimed the title of the richest city in Brazil in terms of gross domestic product (GDP) between 1680 and the beginning of the 19th century. Bahia is the second largest state in the country after Rio de Janeiro, with an annual GDP of over $1.5 billion.
The development Salvador de Bahia, strategically located on the huge bay that overlooks the Brazilian coast, aimed to centralize the activities of the metropolises of Portugal. The development, which overlooks an immense bay on the Brazilian coast, aims to centralize the operation of its metropolis, the Portuguese Americas, in the region of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Salvador de Bahia was founded and is still an important Brazilian port. It formed the basis for the development of the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil's largest city and the largest port in the world.
It is this culture that turns the wheels in Salvador da Bahia, and it is also the source of many traditions and traditions of the city, such as the culture of music, art, music and dance.
Carnival is one of the most amazing things in Brazil, and the video above is just about Salvador's carnival, but the carnival of Salvador de Bahia is actually one of the best in Brazil - almost a rival to the carnival processions of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. Salvador has the largest carnival in the world with more than 100,000 people a day, twice as many as Rio and twice as many as Sao Paulo. The number of events, such as the Festival of Music, Dance, Food and Entertainment, is even greater. Visitors can enjoy the history of Brazil's 17th and 18th century journey, as well as a church in this capital decorated with 18-century silver cutlery.
Visitors to Pelourinho, the historic centre of Salvador, will find an architectural gem from the colonial era, reminding them that Salvador was once, next to Lisbon, the most important city in the Portuguese Empire.
The state of Bahia, as I would like to call it, particularly in its capital Salvador, has behaved with a large African population from the African continent. Lavagem is a great example of the "African heritage" that makes Salvador de Bahia so distinctive with its rich history and culture.
Modern Salvador is a city of over two million inhabitants, and since 2010 the city itself has more than 1.5 million inhabitants, about half of whom are of Afro-Brazilian descent.
It was here that the Brazilian Capoeira was born, one of the oldest and most popular sports in the world, which nobody outside of Rio de Janeiro has repeated. The descendants of those who lived through Brazil's ban on capoesira in the 1920s made Salvador a world-class training ground for international capoeiristas to master the art.
The general failure of the capitulation led the Portuguese crown to establish the governorship of Brazil in Salvdor da Bahia in March 1549, under the leadership of Thome de Souza. Salvador remained Brazil's colonial government until 1763, when the capital was moved to Rio due to the decline of the sugar cane industry. After the Dutch gained control of Bahias in 1624 and 1625, the Portuguese ruled it for the next two centuries until de Souza came.
Brazilian slavery ended in 1888, and Salvador was the country's most populous city at the end of the 20th century, behind Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo.
Today, Salvador de Bahia is a metropolis with over three million inhabitants, which continues its tradition of carnival and has a historic center that has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Salvador began as the first capital of Brazil, founded in 1884 as the capital of the state of Rio de Janeiro, the second largest city in the country. Today it is the third largest city of its kind in Brazil, after Rio and Sao Paulo. El Salvador is another coastal region in the northern state of Bahia that has introduced a new development while preserving its past. Despite its heritage, Salvador da Bahias is home to some of the most important cultural and cultural institutions in Brazil, such as museums, theatres, restaurants, hotels, schools, hospitals, universities, churches, parks, museums and much more.
