Know More about this tour
The tour begins in Santo Amaro, a city whose economy was mainly driven by the sugar cane plantations and enslaved labor until 1888.
This town is of great historical significance, particularly in the context of resistance against Portuguese colonization. We will stroll around the local public market and its ancient colonial houses, as well as visit the Samba Museum and the Parish Church.
We will then drive by sugar cane, cassava and tobacco farms towards Cachoeira, the main city in the Recncavo region.
The city was declared as World Heritage Site by UNESCO, located alongside the Paraguau River. It's a singular scenario in terms of architectural and cultural preservation.
We will visit the churches of Carmo and Rosrio, the City Hall and the former jail from the colonial era. We will also visit the House of the religious Sisterhood of Our Lady of the Good Death. This Catholic sisterhood of African Matrix is a living legacy of matriarchal religious syncretism, which fills Recncavo's people with pride, preserving the rich history of black resistance in Bahia and Brazil.
The culmination of their religious and cultural festivities takes place during the month of August. Local businesses also reflect this cultural wealth, where our customers can purchase beautiful carvings, embroidery and paintings produced in the region.
We will cross the Paraguassu river using the bridge built by the British in 1830, giving access to the town of So Felix towards a farm strategically located in the hills surrounding the city, which will allow us an exquisite panoramic view of the region.
On this farm, lunch with typical local dishes will be served. Then, we will visit the renowned Danneman cigar factory, founded in the nineteenth century, where the tradition of producing handcrafted cigars is maintained. We will then return to The hotel.
