  • The fortress of Nossa Senhora dos Prazeres is located on Praia da Fortaleza, distant 4 Km from Brasília at the foot of the Hill of the whale, where there's a gazebo that can admire part of the Bay of Paranaguá and the Ilha do Mel. The fortress was built in the 16th century between 1767 and 1769 by order of the captaincy of São Paulo, to watch the invasion of the Spanish ships and pirates who entered the port of Paranaguá, to steal gold, wood and yerba mate. The place is very nice, apart from history and the scenery is beautiful. Worth the 1 hour walk from approximately to reach the site. It's always nice to bring water and maybe a snack, because the place has structure to meet tourists.
