Brazil’s largest northeastern city, Salvador, has a population of over 2,000,000 and is the state of Bahia’s capital. Divided into the upper city and lower city, they originally constructed Salvador on a steep, rugged crag with the residences, monasteries, and churches expanding on the top level, while the warehouses, docks, industrial and commercial lower level developed in the 1800's. Even today, the city remains separated, connected by the Elevador Lacerda. Destroyed by fire in 1788 and rebuilt in 1828, the convent and Carmelite church contains a wonderful museum that includes a sculpture by Francisco Manuel das Chagas of Christ in Chains. Visitors to the Museum of Sacred Art will find 17th to 19th century portrait sculptures in lead, clay, soapstone, ivory and wood. Built in 1917, the Palácio da Aclamaçâo has wonderful gardens, luxurious interior, and an interesting museum.
