Bahia (Portuguese pronunciation: ¨ baˈi.a ¨ is one of the 26 states of Brazil, and is located in the northeastern part of the country on the Atlantic coast.
It is the fourth most populous Brazilian state after São Paulo, Minas Gerais and Rio de Janeiro, and the fifth-largest in size. It is also one of the most important states in terms of history and culture in Brazil, and is comparable to Pernambuco in Brazil's Northeast Region.
Bahia's capital is the city of Salvador, or more properly, São Salvador da Bahia de Todos os Santos, and is located at the junction of the Atlantic Ocean and the Bay of All Saints. The name "bahia" is an archaic spelling of the Portuguese word meaning "bay" and comes from All Saints' Bay, first seen by European sailors in 1501.
It was in Bahia, the region of Porto Seguro and Santa Cruz de Cabrales, the fleet of Pedro Alvares Cabral arrived in 1500, marking the discovery of Brazil. On 1 November 1501, the Genoese navigator Amerigo Vespucci discovered the Bay of All Saints. The village formed in these banks became the first seat of the government-general, Tomé de Sousa arriving in 1549 to fill the position. Known as the "Land of Happiness", that because of its gay population and festive events that contribute to its high tourist potential, which has been little explored by its coastline, the largest in Brazil, Chapada Diamantina, Recôncavo and other natural beauty and historical and cultural value.
