Well, I live in Salvador-Bahia and I wish to tell about the munument shown in the photo. Well this monument is the "Farol da Barra". It´s a famous fortress and lighthouse which was built by the Portuguese, many centuries ago, for defense of the City of Salvador against the action of invasors and pirates. It is a very beautiful fortress situated in a wonderful place surrounded by a green sea and enchanted beaches. Lot and lots of tourists visit this local every day. There is a nautic museum inside the Fortress.
