  • The fortress is beautiful are in restoration, soon we will have an attractive restored and ready for visitation

  • As a traditional location of Morro de São Paulo and in the history of our country, needs all the care that is needed. When I visited the archipelago, the fortress was being reformed. I hope this ends soon and that the site is open to visitors. Is sure to be one of the great attractions of that place.

  • Unfortunately when I was on the island she wasn't open to visitation because he was in retirement. From what I could see the reform has improved a lot and the gate on the side was pretty much.
