Great tour, Cachoeira and São Félix
City tour Salvador can be extended with a visit to the little towns of Cachoeira and São Felix which are also worth a trip, but require a drive of about 2 to 3hours from Praia do Forte Bahia. It is worth while, because time in the little towns seems to have been standing still for centuries, and it looks like modern brazilian time has never entered in the life of the inhabitants. It is an amazing experience, like a trip in Aldous Huxley or H.G Well “Time machine” to the past. Dannemann cigar factory, São Félix
The year 1872, São Félix: the business man Geraldo Dannemann founded his first cigar factory. This region is called the “Recôncavo Baiano,” and was one of the first agriculturally developed areas of Brazil. Today, Dannemann still operates the factory of cigars in São Felix, and evidently makes the best Cigar wrapper, or cover foils for cigars worldwide. This cover foils are used by quite a number of important cigars manufacturer around the globe, without mentioning the origin of the Cigar wrapper. But you will see the ladies rolling the cigars by hand on their knees, and if you are passionate cigar smokers, you can make your own cigar und the guidance of one of the professionals.
