Santa Catarina Fort, Cabedelo
(3.6/5 based on 420+ 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. Put Santa Catarina Fort into our Cabedelo itinerary builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Little pretty self-explanatory. Without many explanations of what happened at the site, or how the Fort was built ... needs to be operated in a better way the history of the site ... but it is a nice attraction if you're in Cabedelo ... worth the!

  • Lack of management organization to organize more objects and more stories to be told. Had no guide to guide about the history of the fortress.
