From 1946 up to his death in1996, Salvador do Bahia was the center of Pierre Verger's life. From here he set out on his many journeys to the American continent, overseas and, of course, all throughout Brazil.

From this uncrowned capital of Afro-Brazilian culture, he traveled most of all through the land's regions, especially through those where African roots were still present, such as between Rio de Janeiro and the federal state of Pernambuco *).
