Testimonial to a living tribute of African Diaspora in Brazil is The Good Death Festival aka (Festa da Boa Morte) which originated in Salvador Bahia at a time when Blacks were denied access to Catholic ceremonies.
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.
Sisterhood of the Good Death tour packages can be booked separately or 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 Bahiaturisa have always given us the necessary support that our Salvador based travel team needs to deliver authentic travel experiences to all of our travel guests; whether you're booking a (half-day) group tour excursion, or a (week-long) private tropical getaway on the pristine Marau located on Bahia's sexy southern Dendê Coast.
