Specialty Museum Museum
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.

  • There's not much to do at this point. It was more the history and I think it worthwhile to stop by!

  • The fortress is a treasure that is not well explored by locals. The place is well maintained and has a good part of your beauty and strength. Recommend a visit to everyone, especially for those who like history. It would be interesting to the local municipal government invested more in this monument.

  • Historical heritage of PB, place of fundamental importance to the history of the local people and Brazil, a symbol of the struggles and invasions of their ancestors, especially the people of Europe when it came to install here. Place super maintained and safe and one of the main sights of the Paraíba.
