Candomble, Salvador da Bahia: 3 reviews and 0 photos

To understand a little bit more Salvador and its 'povo', please read something about Orisha, Condomblč and the slevary before visiting this palce.....
Like Capoeira Orisha was the answer of the slavery to the proibithion of the portuguese to practice the traditional african religion: the african transformed the catholic Saints in Orishas, that were the mixture of afican and catholic divinity.
In Salvador there is lake with in the middle the statue of Orishas, very nice in the light of the night.
