At 7:00, the Royal Yacht Britannia entered the coast of Salvador. At 9:15, the royal couple disembarked and travelled in motorcade to the Anglican Church and then visited the British Club. At 10:10, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh arrived at the Aclamação Palace, where Governor Luís Viana Filho welcomed them to a reception in their honour. Jorge Amado, a major name in 20th century Brazilian literature, and Carybé, a highly-regarded Argentinian-Brazilian visual artist, were among the guests at the reception. From the Aclamação Palace, they proceeded to visit the historical São Francisco Church, the Sacred Art Museum and the Mercado Modelo, a traditional popular market. The royal couple then returned to the Royal Yacht Britannia, departing to Rio de Janeiro at 12:35.
