    It is an ancient Portuguese Fort which lies at one end of the beach Porto da Barra, you can enter free of charge all the days until the 19 hours, illuminating it with images and colored lights and it looks very different, I recommend visiting it, does not cost anything and is realm very beautiful body.

    In this Fort there is little innovation. Arriving at the site there are a few that make the army security guard at the site. The people come and go and they are dumb and silent. The view from the Fort is very beautiful. And the interesting thing there is that has an instrument type binocular to see the sea. To use it you enter a R$ coin 1.00 (one real) and the lens of the binoculars is released to see the high seas for a few moments. To toast the machine loose a large coin with the logo of the Fort. My son loved it. Outside of the Fort there is a build up of fishermen drinking cachaça and cooking fish outdoors. An unbearable smell of fish.

Where to stay in Salvador

The majority of accommodations in Salvador fall into three distinct groupings. If you want to be close to the best historical attractions, stay in or near the old town of Pelourinho, a few minutes from the city's west-facing coastline. This also puts you in the heart of Salvador's tourist-driven nightlife. Your second option is to stay at the southwestern tip of the city, in the neighborhood of Barram, where you'll have instant access to one of Salvador's favorite beaches. Finally, look a bit farther afield to Rio Vermelho, a quieter beachside neighborhood facing south.
