Museu Forte Defensor Perpetuo de Paraty, Paraty

(3.5/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Your walk to Museu Forte Defensor Perpetuo de Paraty will be accompanied by the singing of birds and views of the lands below that will make you swoon. The museum itself has two rooms: one exhibits the tradition of local dance and music, while the other is dedicated to the history and uses of the fort. On the grounds you'll find cannons pointing towards the ocean and a flat lawn that hosts visiting artist exhibits. Look for a tall, knobbed tree trunk just outside the fort's stone wall. Its twisted wood is a bizarre addition to the area. Take a look at our Paraty family vacation planner to schedule your visit to Museu Forte Defensor Perpetuo de Paraty and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Free ride that requires a brief walks through a small trail, which offers a spectacular view. Easy access for children, adults and seniors.

  • I visited the Fort of Paraty last year. There's nothing really different, but did the tour of the Paraty tours. It is beautiful, but very normal. You can see the Bay of Paraty from above which is pretty interesting.

  • I was hoping to get into the Fort and see the furniture, but found it closed. The surroundings are very beautiful, so it wasn't a wasted journey.

  • My wife & I arrived from British Columbia last November. We explored & geocached our way from Intervales Park to Paraty. A very well kept display. Old cannons poised for battle are positioned around the small fort's perimeter. A shaded walk gradually takes you up from the limited roadside parking just above the town of Paratay. Well worth visiting. We enjoyed watching the small monkeys that inhabit the surrounding foliage. The fort itself offers not only a historic sense of place but also some terrific evelated views out over the ocean. A great time of year to visit, this Canadian couple gives it 2 thumbs up!
  • A parte histórica aberta a visitação é pequena, mas bem cuidada. Há duas construções: o prédio principal e o paiol, mais escondido e não aberto à visitação. A praça de armas é pequena e os canhões não possuem o suporte. É um lugar para visitas rápidas: não espere gastar mais do que 20 ou 30 minutos aqui. A localização em meio mata e próximo ao mar é o diferencial do lugar, muito agradável. O acesso é feito por estrada não pavimentada, mas boa mesmo após período de chuva. Entrada apenas para pedestres.
  • Ok
  • entao chegaaaaamos, que longe..
  • Trilha de terra subida leve mas de quase dois km. Minha filha de 7 anos adorou.
