  • Accessed by street Caiçaras, get on the road that will give access to this Fort. I used to bike, but desaconselharam me to go again, because it can be dangerous. The road is relatively deserted, but it's nice. At the end of her reach a settlement. Find place to leave your car and walk on foot to the Fort for a small track, without any difficulty. The space is well maintained, and there is some information about your story. This Fort is visible from the end of the beach of Saints.

  • The Fort is very interesting but it's Hell to get there. Have to park the car ma Street and follow a trail in the Woods about 10 minutes. All without any signaling. Play guidance to residents. For those with a spirit of adventure the effort is worth it.

  • The Fort is pretty cool. Is a historical gem of the IDEs of colony Brazil. Unfortunately is badly insulated and apparently abandoned. Responsibility for the Fort is the city of Guaruja, which in recent years have not handled well. It seems that the current Mayor will give attention to this important historical icon. The problems start at the arrival, because the neighborhood is dangerous and your neighborhood teeming with unemployed drug users. Inside, there is no uniform Guide to conduct the visit. Worth knowing for the architecture, but it's too bad to see the indifference of the Government.

  • Great historic value. A bit difficult to get there.
  • Great place of you like history. Nice, clean, with a knowledgeable guide, we spent about an hour and a half touring the place, looking at maps, talking about the city, the port, and watching the huge ships come in and out of the canal.
  • The location and simply amazing, a 1580/90 fortress, preserved but to my view lack a more efficient and structured local tourism. Ascent through Santos by boat. Down the road, or at the Guarujá extremely dangerous, assaults on site. In the fortress itself it is necessary to have attention, lack safety to tourists.

  • One of the most beautiful places of Santos, where you can see wonderful landscapes. The Museum of the fortress has exactly what can you expect from a place like this. If you want to know a little more of our history come on. The access can be done by ferries.

  • The fortress was restored after a long period of neglect, pity that the infrastructure (access, parking) doesn't help much. The Museum is precarious in objects and descriptive historical information, which are fortunately provided by great guides. At some points the restoration doesn't seem to have had the care due. If you're in Guarujá visit.
