|Farol do Barra (Barra Lighthouse)|
The center of Barra is the paseo that has been built along Av. Oceanica right along the water.
|The beach is nice, but the water is rocky|

At the west end of the paseo is the Faro de Barra - The Barra Lighthouse:

Also at that end of the paseo is the first apartment building constructed in the Barra neighborhood - Condominio Morro do Paciencia.

At the west end of the paseo is a park topped off with a statue of Christ.

So far we are really enjoying out stay. Being near the water is great. The neighborhood is laid back. It is place that really mixes foreign tourists, Brazilenos and Bahians. My favorite type of area to stay in.
