We saw the lighthouse and maritime museum on a rainy and gusty day which made us realise just how important light houses are for those at sea. This present one dates back to 1856, is still working today and we were able to clamber up to the top. We then spent a very interesting hour or so going round the museum and were delighted that a lot of the descriptions of the artefacts were in English. There are a number of interesting facts about the Salvador region and remnants from the ship Sacramento which sank in 1668 which were salvaged in 1973.
