  • 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.

  • It is interesting to discover a strong part in the history of santos Bay, the visitation is free and all recovered and in good condition. The local guide in answered very well on the day and we were 4 people the bad part is the location, very hidden and poorly marked, if you come by Guarujá will have to leave by asking on the street where Fort

  • several km from the Centre of Guarujá, the Fort is a beautiful place, opposite the city of Santos. A recovered strong, well prepared guides. The view is very nice. You will reach the same into a campsite in recovery. But then they told us that the neighborhood is not safe. We did not have problems. Also, missing signage for access to the workplace.

  • 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 fortress is beautiful, full of history and everyone should visit her, but the Guarujá City Hall seems to have forgotten the neighborhood where it is located. Bad access, no sign, no parking, no! Is a historical present abandoned, unfortunately.

  • The place is beautiful and has a privileged view. The staff are very attentive. But lack investment in maintenance and activities for the tourist.
