In this “Suite Royal” of our Beach Hotel Praia do Forte, Wilson planned the future of Praia do Forte Bahia, and his traces are still visible today, even though unfortunately Wilson passed away in 2002 and Klaus Peters sold most of its properties after he became 70.

Museum Castle Garcia D’Avila, by Architect Wilson
One of his last master pieces Wilson planned in this very nice suite was the museum of the Castle Garcia D’Avila and the monuments for the 500 year event of the Discovery of Brazil. The two similar monuments were to be constructed in Lisbon, the place where the ships left Portugal, and in Porto Seguro, where the adventures entered for the first time in history Brazil. Unfortunately for Wilson, who won the international architectural competition, the projects were cancelled one year prior to the 500 year celebration.
In the mean time, this huge suite of over 100 m2 of our Beach Hotel Praia do Forte was transformed in two very comfortable suites. Wilson’s projects are published in his biography “Em torno da Arquitetura”, Editora Correio Brasiliense, Brasília, Caderno Especial. 5 of Mai 1998 was the opening of an exposition dedicated for Wilson in the national Museum of fine Arts in Rio de Janeiro (Museu Nacional de Belas Artes no Rio - MNBA).
