    A very interesting program, because it presents part of our story, about the construction of the fortress and also from a more recent period, which deals with the use of the fortress during the period of the military dictatorship. In addition, it has a wonderful view of Guanabara Bay!! Valley super worth it.

    Incomparable view of Rio de Janeiro, with Sugarloaf. Guided tour by army officer of 1 hour very instructive.

    Great place to visit. Have tabs that tell the history of the fortress. Great for visiting in the summer because there is always a nice breeze. The problem lies on the weekends because the access is so much bottled up by the large number of bathers who frequent the beaches before the Fortress.

    History and a beautiful story about niteroi and on rio de janeiro. Delight yourself with a military history involving soldiers ... pirates ... fujoes prisoners and bodies. The entry pay costs 6.00 the eh and 3.00. The visits are guided tours every hour. Close of 12.00 to 13.00 for lunch. And does not require prior scheduling.
