Categories: Military Museums, Architectural Buildings, Museums, Nature & Parks, Outdoor Activities, Tourist Spots
Built into a rocky outcropping off the coast, this military installation once used for defense now gives visitors an ideal spot for ocean views. San Matheus Fort defended the settlers near this chunk of coast from threats on the water. Today, it is a landmark that attracts passersby from all over the world. You won't find a museum or guided tour, but the breeze on your face and the sea slamming into the rocks below make this a good location to take in the beauty of the country's coastline. Arrange to visit San Matheus Fort and other attractions in Cabo Frio using our Cabo Frio vacation route planner.

I did a lot of pictures of the landscape. The bad part is that access is not suitable for the elderly or those who have I loved the problem because the chains that lead the way, and that would serve to support, are broken or rusted. Also when you get to the parking lot I noticed that the site has aspect of carelessness and dirt and has parking charge cards (which I thought was absurd). Despite all the ride is worth it for the great view from the top of the Fort.show original
