The fort reminded me of the fort in Belem, Portugal. It shows its Portuguese origins. The views from the light house are beautiful. Must do in Salvador.

A great little museum situated in an old fort. The museum gives lots of information about shipping in Brazil, especially how the Portuguese discovered Brazil and colonized it. There is also information about the slave trade and a collection of model ships with information about each one detailing the history of Brazilian war ships. Nearly all of the information boards are displayed in Portuguese and English.

There is also a lighthouse you can climb to the top of and get some great views of the surrounding area and it has been freshly painted.

There is a coffee shop on-site selling food and drink at a reasonable price. Entry to the museum is R$10.

The fort is small, mostly converted into a beautiful lookout spot and a museum. The latter is in fact very interesting, focused on the colonization and independence of Brazil. There's plenty of scale models and informative panels in English and Portuguese. The best thing about it is that it can be explored in detail in about an hour.
