    Rua Castelo Picão

    Turn left here on Rua do Castelo Picão by door n.º62.

    Go up the street until you reach Salvador Square. You'll see a yellow building on the left. Keep walking up aiming for the yellow building.

    It was the former Convent of Saint Salvador, dating from the 1300s. Nowadays it houses a cultural centre, where the locals practice all year for the city traditional popular marches in June, that I mentioned earlier.

    Continue towards the yellow building.

Preview mode limited to first 3 locations.
