An oasis in the middle of Bahia’s Sertão. That would be an appropriate definition for the beautiful, versatile and cozy Caldas do Jorro, where, amid the short and twisted trees of the caatinga, spring from the soil delicious thermal waters.
The city is very picturesque and has among its highlights and excellent hotel infrastructure, with options for every taste and budget. Taking advantage of the powerful leather industry of the region, Jorro was transformed in a big production and distribution pole of this material. On Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, tens of stands are assembled to sell these products, which include hats, shoes, clothes, rugs and riding articles.
However, the attributes that guaranteed fame and fans for the place, blend its unique cuisine to its delightful waters. Winter is the best time of the year to visit the city since with the significant drop in the temperature of the season, the baths in the fountains of the city’s main square become even more pleasurable.
In the first hours of the day, before the hotel’s breakfast, it’s a good idea to start the day with a stimulating hot bath. Don’t forget to try the local specialty: grilled goat, which has become one of the attractions of the city.
