Cinco Pontas Fort, Recife
Categories: Military Museums, Specialty Museums, Museums
Cinco Pontas Fort is an old military fortress built by the Dutch in 1630 and one of the most representative monuments of colonial architecture. It is shaped to resemble five points of guns ready to shoot. Today, the wonderfully restored fort is a museum that features permanent exhibition of 150,000 maps, drawings, paintings, lithographs, and photographs from 16th to 20th century that illustrate the city’s history, as well as a gun arsenal including cannons and torture machines. Perhaps the most curious thing about the "Fort of Five Points" is that it only has four. The original Dutch fort had five sides, but the Portuguese leveled that fort and rebuilt it in their traditional four-pointed style.
