Full description
The history of the City of São Salvador of Bahia has as one of its main features the cultural wealth inherited from African peoples. Through centuries of struggle of our ancestors to assert their faith in African gods, a new religious structure known as Candomblé emerged; an African-Brazilian religion of worship to the Orixas, a living manifestation of the resilience and the spiritual strength of Africans and their descendants in Brazil. Orixas, Inquices and Voduns...African gods who crossed the seas and sustained their devotees' spirits in overcoming obstacles amidst the torments inflicted by slavery. You'll respectfully immerse yourself in this universe of faith, in order to experience such manifestation of ancestral religiosity, In the night when women and men summon the gods to earth, through their rituals, rhythms, songs, colors, food, and their reverence. The Orixas accept the invitation, and these gods dance, celebrate and bless their people.  The itinerary is prepared by a member of this religion, aiming to provide you the opportunity to witness the most beautiful legacy left by the African ancestors in the New World.

Tour only for students of the subject.

The ceremony is very long and becomes monotonous. It is only for students of Afro-Brazilian culture. Our guide, Nilza, very nice, lovely.
