Good Death Festival
Our Good Death Festival aka (Sisterhood of the Good Death Festival) group tour (August 09-17-2017) in Cachoeira Bahia Brazil - Departs Miami (MIA) International Airport on Wednesday, August 09, arrive Salvador (SSA) on Thursday, August 10. Return to MIA on Thursday, August 17-2017. (This tour excursion can be booked separately or with your existing itinerary)
We offer a very engaging group excursion to Cachoeira each year for this world famous event highlighting the Sisterhood of Our lady of the Good death (Irmandade da Nossa Senhora da Boa Morte) the renowned Afro-Catholic religion group.
Founded in the early 19th century as a Church-sponsored beneficent Sisterhood for female African slaves and former slaves, it became one of the oldest and most respected worship groups for Candomblé, the major African-based religion in Brazil.
This tour can be booked separately or with a customized group package that is combined with our African Heritage City Tour that explores Salvador's historic Pelourinho District, once a major slave market and home to Salvador's Afro-Brazilian museum. We welcome single travelers and travel groups (4-35) to join us for this must see fascinating Candomblé religion festival. It’s worth a special trip to Cachoeira, a small hamlet about 2 hours, by luxury coach, west of Salvador to witness this event.
Our trusted government travel partners at Bahiatursa have always given us the necessary support that our Salvador based travel team needs to deliver authentic travel experiences to all of our travel guest; whether you're booking a (half-day) group tour excursion, or a (week-long) private tropical getaway on the pristine Maraú located on Bahia's sexy southern Dendê Coast.
