CIEE: Salvador da Bahia, Brazil (Liberal Arts)
Universidade Catolica do Salvador (UCSal)
Salvador da Bahia, located on the Atlantic coast in northeastern Brazil, has 2.1 million inhabitants. Due to the strong slave presence during the Colonial period, Salvador has a strong African influence, including religious and spiritual practices, cuisine, and ethnic dynamics. Today Salvador is a booming city and its historic and ethnic diversity can be noted in the city's architecture and layout: old parts of the city are next to modern complexes. The CIEE Study Center is located on a bustling square, 2 de Julho, located near Pelourinho, the historic center of the city.
