A trip to the past.
Aug 2019
It's hard to imagine that in the past, all of this region, was part of a feudal dominion that was governed from a Castle. Nowadays we get to enjoy the landscape and amazing nature of Bahía, with the beatiful beaches overall.
But visiting this castle, just a short trip from Praia do Forte, allows you to connect with a colonial past full of harsh stories and lives.

"Tunnel of Time" until the age of the "Capitanias Hereditárias"

Late afternoon between 16 and 17:30 hours we found a good time due to the variation of the lights on the site overturned by historical patrimony. Built in 1551. Only 51 years after the arrival of the Portuguese in Brazil. It is still in the process of geological excavation and investigation. We took beautiful photos. Entry of R $ 10,00 / person. Fair. After an event area with location description you walk down a street to the ruins. The view of the coast is also beautiful. Seen to be in a high place of the coast. The public power should invest soon in the conclusion of the access agreement because only half of the 3 km between the entrance of the city to the historical site has pavement of parallelepipedos. The dirt road has many dangerous holes. Especially after the rain the day before, when we passed there. Invest more in our history. Worth knowing.
