Pelourinho

Highly recommended
The Largo do Pelourinho is located in a street in Old Salvador. Its name comes from thepelourinho (pillory) that stood here during colonial times, and it was the place where slaves were punished before the masses. Today, this picture-perfect location with its lovely colonial houses sits uncomfortably with its history...
