People from Salvador

Adriana Lima, People from Salvador da Bahia, Brazil

The people in Salvador are sometimes misinterpreted for being lazy and for having a lack of work dedication. In reality though, the soteropolitanos, as the people of Salvador are called, just like most inhabitants in Bahia, are simply known for their being fun-loving and easy-going.


Salvador is the birthplace of many famous personalities in and outside of Brazil; a number in the world of sports, some in politics, and many in the world of arts and entertainment. One of these many icons born in the city is Adriana Lima.


Anybody who is keen to fashion knows Adriana Lima – a Victoria’s Secret Angel. Born in the city in June 1981, Lima was also the face of Maybelline cosmetics for six years since 2003. She started in the business after bagging the title as Ford’s Supermodel of Brazil and finishing second in Ford’s Supermodel of the World. After getting signed by Elite Model Management, Lima is already now known as among the world’s highest earning models.


Adriana Lima is just one proof of Salvador’s beauty (that is literally and figuratively saying). When in the city, you will be amazed with the warmth and friendliness of the people in Salvador – just an added reason to visit it.
