  • Tourist attraction with good structure maintained by the Brazilian Army. Very organized with guided tour. Stunning views of Guanabara Bay access to historic buildings. A little away from the River, but worth the visit. Set aside an afternoon to meet Niterói lunch in the neighborhood of San Francisco and follow the edge until Jurujuba where the fortress.

  • This tour is one of the most important to do in Niterói. In addition to stunning views, has an important history lesson of Brazil. In warmer weather, I recommend spent the morning because it can become unpleasant to visit due to the heat. Young children are also advised against going because there are no attractions for them, besides being exhausting.
