  • The historic places of Salvador are in need of maintenance, but, still, it's worth the visit. The view from there is very beautiful!

  • The Fort is very cute and has a nice view to the sea, to the city and a beach. Yields excellent pictures. It is a pity that there was open for visitation. A shame to be so poorly preserved.
