Bahia

Brazilian State of Bahia

State Capital City: Salvador

State Abbreviation: BA

Bahia is located in the NE part of Brazil on the Atlantic coast. #5 on map.

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, first seen by European sailors in 1501.

The name "bahia" is an archaic spelling of the Portuguese word baía , meaning "bay".

The state's geographical regions comprise the Atlantic Forest. The Recôncavo region radiating from the Bay (the largest in Brazil), the site of sugar and tobacco cultivation. And the Planalto, which includes the fabled sertão region of Bahia's far interior.

Bahia is bordered, in counter clockwise fashion, by Sergipe, Alagoas, Pernambuco and Piauí to the north, Goiás and Tocantins to the west, and Minas Gerais and Espírito Santo to the south.
