Skyline of Old Downtown



Not really a skyline... but the buildings under the arch are interesting

Holy crap, putting the skyscrapers aside (6/10), that is an incredible place with the mix of the natural enviornment and the city. Ecspecially the second picture there, the cliffs with buildings. WOW!! That is definitley on my places to visit list!

Great! what a difference! this is something different than the common brazilian city, it has everything even colonial architecture, density but is not overcrowded, it has midrises and some buildings that breaks with the typical flat skyline, has landscape and green areas that breaks with the monotony of an infinite city.

just it needs a tall observation tower at the center and voila!

8.5/10

Eduardo,
unfortunately, the idea that old-buildings must be preserved, started in Brazil just some years ago... Before, we used to destroy everything.

Salvador only has this huge historical center because this place was a SLUM until the 90's. The same thing happens in São Luís: it has an enourmous historical center, because it was a completely decadent city, in the poorest state of Brazil. If São Luís gets richer, it's gonna be that interesting too.

Ouro Preto, the small little town of Minas Gerais, that I posted in the Latin Forum, is also preserved because it was abandoned until the 70's, after the capital was changed to Belo Horizonte, in 1897. If it was still the capital, everything would have been destroyed.

We have some cities, like Rio de Janeiro, with maaany historic buildings, even complete streets without any modern one. But they don't make a whole district, modern buildings are everywhere, between them... Well, in Rio it's very interesting, but it's awesome to have REAL and completely historical districts.

Salvador is almost as good as Recife....and thats why I gave it a 8.5, very dense, some height (for Brazil of course) a great old part of the city, which is today very well conserved...
BTW Bahia state is doing great on restoring the old buildings

I have heard so many good things about Salvador (party-town and the like) and met so many nice people from there that I am overjoyed to finally see some pics of this place, and try to pick out the best places to visit when I get there.

Anyway, back to the skyline, definitely has density, some very nice buildings (besides the old ones, that goes without saying) and talls are reasonably concentrated. Needs some more height to add to a better definition of the core.
