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.

  • Beautiful place, the boat trip to la is the best, while enjoying to view the scenery that the site provides. I'm sure a lot of local history.

  • Being in the historic center of Paraty, worth through the alleys and visit everything, and this is more a cultural and tourist spot in the city, despite not having great attraction for him.

  • 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!
