Forte do Presepio, Belem

(4.5/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
The panoramic views from the ramparts are alone well worth a visit to Forte do Presepio. Standing among the original canons, you can look out over Guajará Bay and witness, from a safe distance, the impressive flocks of vultures descending on Ver o Peso market. The fort itself is in the historic center of Belém and home to a small museum where you can take a tour and learn about the local history. A collection of ceramics and native Tupi and Marajoara artifacts dates from before the arrival of the Portuguese to the region.

  • The entrance to the open area of the Fort could be free. The Museum is interesting with indigenous artifacts found in excavations in the area where the Fort was built. Low price and interesting.

  • It's a great ride, in addition to the aforementioned attractions, it is close to the 11 Windows that is a space for exhibitions and the Cathedral da Sé beyond hotel Court, which has a cosy restaurant with excellent cost x benefit. It is also very close to the Ver-O-Peso market and Estação das Docas. Anyway, despite the fact that Bethlehem be a little abandoned, visiting the places is interesting.

  • Bonito local
  • And what I liked most to visit the Fort? A Brazilian Navy ship to be anchored there. It is possible to meet internally almost all compartments of the ship. Not to mention that the ship has the "crew", lol ... are life-size sculptures and super spontaneous poses. I have beautiful photos taken there.
