Sao Marcelo Fort is one of the most beautiful place in Salvador to go, that would worth the trip. To see the sunset, sunrise, whatever. Unfortunately it is closed for visit and don't have due date to reopen. It's a shame for the city.

It has a beautiful view of the city, a very cute way of getting there and a history of the centuries. there was a restaurant, but I believe it's now closed.
