  • It is an ancient Portuguese Fort, located at one end of the beach Porto da Barra, you can visit every day for free, up to 7 pm. I recommend going to sunset the sunset from there is very beautiful. Night light up images typical Bahian and is very picturesque.

  • Impression of the defense system in sec 16. Today along with contemporania exposure makes a link between generations and increases curiosity.

  • 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.
