Santa Catarina Fort, Cabedelo

(3.6/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
Located near the mouth of the river Paraíba do Norte, Santa Catarina Fort is a small colonial fort with a rich history. The location has been fortified since the late sixteenth century, but the existing structure dates back only to the eighteenth century. The fort has been the site of many fierce battles, protecting the Portuguese from colonial invaders such as the Dutch and French, and consequently has been partially destroyed and rebuilt several times. From the walls, you have a commanding view of the surrounding environment.

  • The Forte de Santa Catarina, is located in the town of Cabedelo. The place is very clean, has stories and paintings of various strengths of Brazil. The part that depicts a little about the whales, is precarious. In place lack a guide to tell you a little more about the story. Is valid to visit. A hug. DEMIAN CRISTIANO

  • Worth paying a guide to tell the stories of the fortress. Very interesting. Today the children will play football and history lessons. Know every little corner is magical.

  • A historic site for the State of Paraiba, however is in bad condition, very Bush, in State of decay. We got there at the reception, which does not appear to be a, pay a cheap ticket, symbolic, offered us a guide, but we can manage without. Anyway a guide approached without any credential or uniform and told a little of the history. But it was disappointing for us that we were waiting for a more organized and see some more of the story of Paraíba. Not recommend meet.
