Sprawled across broad equatorial latitudes, stoked and steamed and sensual in the widest sense of the word...limned in cadenced song...its very name born in heat and embers, Brazil is a conundrum wrapped in a smile inside an irony...

The Oceania: Salvador's First "Highrise"

The Oceania is Salvador's first "high rise". It was built in the stolid, solid 1950s (asterisks because while it was considered high in the Salvador of the time, nobody would consider it so now), and it sits at the very tip of the Salvador peninsula, across the street from Brazil's first light house. Gilberto Gil, one of Brazil's most famous singers has an apartment here.

As in pre-war New York City, this was the era of space in residential buildings; ample, capacious...this in a location where the seabreeze is constant...

Salvador is undergoing redevelopment under the direction of an energetic new mayor, with the entire area along the seafront in Barra (the neighborhood where the Oceania is located) in the process of being transformed into a European-style boardwalk (so to speak), the broadest part of the area to be devoted to pedestrian and bicycle traffic. The work is beautiful and is well along now.

When all is said and done, the Oceania is a great place in the best space in an amazing city.

Spectacular & huge 2 bdrm/2 bath apt in Edificio Oceania right on the Avenida at Farol da Barra. Perfect for four. 6 pax max.

The legendary Oceania that's hosted some very famous people including Pele, the football (soccer) legend.
