    When we went to the Fort was closed and with no warning of operating hours. The view is beautiful. We stopped at the beach next, but we found a little dangerous. Do not feel safe in the area even in daylight.

    Very cool place for pictures taking of Humaitá. In gusty winter days, but it's still a good place to visit. It is near the Church of Bonfim and can walk.

    When we went, it was closed. Even the drivers knew right where it was, which I thought was strange. So that led us to a little before, and the pictures I knew it wasn't there. But outside, in a place with a view to the sea.

    The place has a beautiful sunset, however access is kind of bad. Be very careful because the area doesn't seem very safe.

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.
