Located in the heart of Cidade Alto, the Pelourinho is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that has undergone some considerable preservation work. Rich in history, some of the buildings of the colonial era still stand, along with an array of magnificent churches. Though it might look like a complete touristy place, the Pelourinho is the hub of many-a-local activities like music and dance schools, capoeira training and cultural centres.
