  • The lighthouse is located in Barra, a nice neighborhood in Salvador. It’s walking distance to three public beaches. The museum is really interesting, including replicas of cool maps from the 17th...

  • The lighthouse is built atop the Forte de Santo Antônio da Barra, a historic fortification dating from the sixteenth century. The current lighthouse was constructed in 1839. A light was displayed...

  • The place is kept very clean. The information presented is so interesting and the view from the lighthouse itself is spectacular. Moving on to the local beach was also a pleasure where there is a strong sense of security. The shores in this area are rocky, but if you are careful there is enough sandy beach for a comfortable splash in the sea. The streets above are nicely presented with a wide assortment of places to visit and eat at. I fully recommend the experience.
  • Beautiful lighthouse with a nice fort in front of it. The shirt cut grass gives ample opportunity to sit down and have a drink and watch the sunset. Corona advice: people here behave as if the pandemic does not exist near the beach which is sad to watch. Many many people do not wear masks. Be careful, keep social distance and wear your mask.
