The Baia de Todos os Santos or the Bay of All Saints as it is otherwise known, is the biggest bay in Bahia and is quite the tourist spot. Complete with a light house, a fort and a nautical museum, the fort is an important landmark as it was the first fort built to protect the city of Salvador. Whether it was the Portuguese, Dutch or Spanish, the fort has passed hands depending on who’s on top. Transformed into a museum, the fort is now open to public who can wander about admiring the military architecture and the nautical museum along with some remnants of the slave trade that took place ever so often there. The museum in the lighthouse contains maps and some ancient navigational equipment along with wrecks of a few ships that were lost at sea.

This is the second Salvador Marathon. The Farol and the Porto are two references for this running event. The Farol is a fort constructed to show the All Saints Bay entrance. It has a nice playground with grass in front with a view to two main avenues of Barra district in Salvador.
Wanderful place for sightseeing and hanging out with friends. Beautiful sunset. Water closets available; the tax to go inside the museum is worth and people are very friendly there. There are police officers around all time.
Beautiful light house, must visit if you in Barra. Personally, the most epic location in Salvador.
Location is beautiful. Evening time its very beautiful,the sunset,the sand, the beach, the museum, the light house. Its kinda perfect evening. Only the tickets & merchandise at the museum are little bit overpriced. Rest is ok. After your visit to the museum,you can always go to the beach & relax with a beer on a chair in the sand. I suggest a visit if you are in Salvador.
A lot of history here. Beautiful location
