Praça Tomé de Souza

Interesting
Praça Tomé de Souza, named after the founder of the city of Salvador (a statue in the centre of the square pays homage to him), or Praça Municipal, because of the institutional monuments that surround it: the Paço Municipal, the city's seat of power, and the Palácio Rio Branco, which housed the federal executive. It is up to you which name you choose to call it by, but there is only one way to get there: the Elevador Lacerda takes you up to the square, from where you can enjoy a view over the Cidade Alta and the bay.
