Forte do Presepio, Belem
(4.4/5 based on 1,000+ 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.

  • Historically important, the place has an unforgettable view of the horizon and the waters. Worth knowing!

  • Entry fee (for two, we paid $8R). It allows access to the fort and a small museum with archaeological pieces (pottery,...). For the fort, this allows to have a pleasant view of the city. The fort is very well maintained. What the Museum, no interest, entirely in Portuguese: If you speak the language, say that it's like watching a book with images when you don't know to read... In all, it takes 30 minutes chrono...

  • Nice to visit, especially for the small museum that shows a little bit about the local civilization, since before the European settlers. worth the visit!
