The lake which an old dam built by the military in the 17th century is now the centre piece for statues of the old African gods.

Beautiful park for recreation with a lake and also a restaurant. Also, in the park are the orixas in the lake that are stunning in addition to other cultural and religious monuments on the trail. A must see for sure when in Salvador.

On our guided tour we stopped at the Dique do Tororó lagoon which contains eight sculptures representing important deities of cult in "Candomblé". These deities are each about 10 feet tall and honour some of the most beloved of the "Orixás" (the African deities). This was a lovely location with beautiful old gnarled trees. Just across the lagoon we saw the new soccer stadium - "Arena Fonte Nova".

Not many things to do. It is just a pond in the center of the town. It is a desert area and the access is hard

Nice relaxing little park close to the stadium. We went to see the stadium during the day and noticed this little pond bordered by gardens. It has an art work in the pond and you can rent a paddle boat to cruise the area.

The old dam - "Dique do Tororó" - dates from the 17th century and was built for defense purposes in the colonial years. Today, the lagoon hosts eight magnificent sculptures representing important deities of cult in "Candomblé", the African religion so present in Brazil's culture and society. The statues, by acclaimed sculptor "Tati Moreno", are about 3m high each one and seem to float over the waters of "Dique do Tororó". The deities honor some of the most beloved "Orixás" (the African deities): "Oxalá, Ogum, Iemanjá, Iansã, Oxóssi, Xangô, Oxum and Nanã". It is sided by the beautiful new soccer stadium - "Arena Fonte Nova". Scenic lightings in the evenings. A quick visit and keep going, there is still so much to be seen in mystical Salvador! Enjoy!

This inner city lake is a great place to walk around, admire the new stadium, have a meal at a very good on site restaurant and take pictures of the ''Candomblé'' goddess that are on display in the water close to the shoreline.

For lovers of walking, jogging or running, this is a good size lake full of beautiful trees and scenes. It is stunning and refreshing to go around all the lake, it may take a couple of hours depending on the speed but you will love it. Make sure to bring the camera, lots of places to take a pic. The lake is about 100 meters aways from one the stadiums of the last world cup.
