I don´t know why this place is an attraction.I think there many other interesting places to visit in Salvador.Maybe for the locals is a special place. For me is just somewhere you can pass by and say you visited it.

While touring Salvador we were interested in learning more about the mystic side of Bahia. We were planning on taking a paid tour of a local Candomble religious ceremony, but felt like we needed to know more about the belief system and its history. As part of our research we heard of the Statutes of the Orishas (Candomble spirit deities) that were in a local lake not far from the Pelourinho district called the Dique do Tororó. The park situated around the lake is very nice with lots of locals running around it. There are clean public bathrooms (but as a tourist be sure to bring your own toilet paper and hand sanitizer). There is a nice restaurant on the lake along with a rowing company (you can rent boats or take rowing classes). We took a cab from the Pelourinho district to the lake. We did not speak the language so we showed our driver a photo of the deities in the lake out of a tourist book and he knew exactly where we wanted to go. There is a bus stop across from the lake, so you can also take a local public bus there too. We stayed at the park/lake about an hour. We walked around the park and took photos of the statutes. We also took our Salvador history book and sat under a tree where we read the history of the four Orishas spirits and why they were so significant to the Candomble religion. Visiting the lake and seeing the Statutes of the Orishas is something you should do if you have some time and really want to connect with the mystic side of Bahia, but if you do not have time to see it just look at photos of it in tourist books or online. The lake is in a busy urban area which boarders avenues President Costa e Silva and Vasco da Gama, Centennial Avenue and Valley of the barrels (in Portuguese the street names are Presidente Costa e Silva e Vasco da Gama Centenário e o Vale dos Barris). There is not much around there besides the lake.
