  • We don't get a lot of time, but you can take a good picture. Beautiful place with great views of the waterfront. It's worth the visit.

  • Salvador point with the best view to see the sunset. Usually meeting place of people who want to do outdoor activity. Every once in a while, you get into dance activities, street performers, artistic manifestations... Meet the Nautical museum inside the fort. The value is accessible and accepts half input.

  • Interesting to know the first fort of Brazil. The museum is not very interesting but the view is very beautiful. It costs $15 a whole, R $7.50 a half, R $5 for residents of the city.

  • A nice place to watch the sunset, with a beautiful view on the water. But I recommend to come early (around 4.30 maybe) and have a little picnic with pastels or coxhina, fruit and guarana soda. Because the place gets crowded really quick. We arrived there 5.20 and there was not spot to sit left. But I didn't mind standing, it was nice watching other visitors singing and playing guitar
  • Great place for a history lesson. To many interesting facts. Take your time here!
  • Entrance fee 15 br$ iis really worth. Such a great history and view. Sunset is beatiful.
  • The most famous landmark in Salvador and its well deserved.
  • The most beautiful sunset I've ever seen !!
