Forte do Presepio, Belem

4.5
#2 of 7 in Historic Sites in Belem
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.

  • Very interesting place to visit. Contains a vast story maintained that can be appreciated in parts of Fort-Museum. Just a reminder that Tuesday's free entry.
