Travel Blogs from Salvador
Breakfast not til 8am so went to see the old fountain, the old fort, and the old farol (lighthouse) which unfortunately is closed – still there are good views from near there in both directions. Another whistlestop tour, but with less than 24 hours on the island, it needs to be.
