Ribeira Na Rota

A New Ribeira Blog

Even though most of the tourists who explore Salvador never come to Ribeira, except, perhaps, to jump off a tour bus and eat a quick ice cream at the famous Sorveteria, everyone who visits the ICBIE falls in love with its beautiful neighborhood.  The ICBIE program of hosting socially responsible tourists has given many foreigners an opportunity to discover the Ribeira community and absorb its unique atmosphere.

Ribeira na Rota

Therefore, we are happy to see that a new website, Ribeira na Rota (“Ribeira on Course for Alternative Tourism”), is promoting the neighborhood.  Four local girls, Bruna Rocha, Érica Alves, Lene Santos and Verena Paranhos, journalism students at the Federal University of Bahia, are responsible for this wonderful initiative, which aims to attract attention to the delights of Ribeira, with pages dedicated to the history, the architecture, the churches, the beaches, the sport activities (especially the four famous rowing clubs), and the restaurants and bars.  There is even a page dedicated to the ICBIE!

    Very good the initiative!!

    Garotas, parabéns pela idéia do projeto.

    Interessante que hoje pela manhã (19), durante a entrevista de Valter Pinheiro, pré-candidato a prefeitura de Salvador, no programa Raio X/Rádio Itaparica, ele comentou que uma das suas metas é a valorização da Ribeira. Oxalá seja verdade! Vocês, juntamente com o ICBIE, já deram os primeiros passos.

    Che bello!!! Le ragazze sono venute qui ad intervistarci proprio pochi giorni dopo la partenza di Marlene. Sono state molto molto brave a realizzare il sito e ad includere in esso tante informazioni interessanti a proposito di Ribeira ed é chiara anche la loro intenzione di creare rete con chi opera per il miglioramento del quartiere.
    Speriamo di poter instuarare ottimi rapporti di collaborazione!
