  • Place with access somewhat difficult but worth the beauty and history and culture. Wonderful view!

  • Landscape, spectacular views, tour with efficiency, good historical content. Strong internal parking: good and safe. Access, by a narrow road, is inadvisable in busy days, as there are traffic jams, caused by the large amount of vehicles and even buses.

  • One of the most beautiful places to visit in Niteroi. History of the defense of the city at the time of the discovery and location have been used tb as pressure during the dictatorship. A lot of history.

  • Great views of Pao de Azucar and centro of Rio de Janeiro.
  • Interesting place. But NO information at all available in any foreign language.
  • belo local
  • Very cool
  • 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.
