  • Recommend a visit. I and my family were close to the time of sunset, besides the amazing view of the sea, also frequent the exposure of Carybé, sensational!

  • The Fort São Diogo is on the tip of Porto da Barra beach. The visit to the external area of the Fort is free and provides a beautiful view of the Bay of all saints and the rim. One of the rooms of the Fort houses the Cultural Space Carybé, arts a virtual collection of the Argentine-born Brazilian artist. Access to this area is paid.

  • In addition to a super view, photography lovers will find a wonderful collection. Well worth the visit

  • The Fort itself is nothing special. Been recently refurbished and now has a small art exhibition (Carybé). Free to visit the building but not the art. View to the sea is great.
  • Safe, lots of guards and police around. Paid parking close to the nearby marina. Good view towards Itaparica Island and the other Santa Maria Fort. The museum is of carybe, with interactive media stuff. They have VR headset and a Kinect to let you control a puppet. Cool, but limited. Not in English!
  • Great exhibition and perfect place to watch the sunset.
  • Ok

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.
