Join an informative free tour of Forte dos Reis Magos, a medieval fortress built in 1598. Built to protect the city from possible foreign invaders, the site now serves as a local museum and a major tourist attraction. The fortress has retained its original five-point star shape, and still contains a chapel, cannons, and soldiers’ quarters. Also included on the site is the Marco de Touros, a marker stone placed there by the early Portuguese settlers. Stop by to explore the history of the region and enjoy panoramic views of the city, Ponte Nova Bridge, and the sand dunes across the Potenji River. Work out when and for how long to visit Forte dos Reis Magos and other Natal attractions using our handy Natal trip builder.
