  • The Fort Orange looks like it was built by the Dutch to defend against pirate attacks and more of the Portuguese and the like. I don't know today, but when I visited didn't seem well maintained, although it would keep some cannons and several rooms, all built of stones

  • Interesting building, very nice beach. Worth visiting for local history. The day I went to the beach was empty, but should have enough movement due to amount of tents.

  • The Fort is open for visitation, but is in the works. There are restricted areas and material of construction. Anyway I can get an idea and the view from there is very beautiful.

  • Forte com valor histórico, mas precisa de manuntenção e cuidados.
  • Lindas paisagens...
  • Lindo demais!
  • Outrora, nos tempos de minha infância, fora um maravilhoso ponto turístico com guias preparados, informativos, objetos arqueológicos e até um pequeno comércio interno, onde era possível comprar souvenirs e/ou presentes temáticos ao forte e região. Infelizmente, este fabuloso monumento histórico hoje está entregue ao descaso, ao abandono, ao lixo. De certo que houve uma considerável queda na renda local, advinda do turismo, que era forte nesse local em diversas estações do ano. Caso nada seja feito com urgência, sobretudo no término de obras inacabadas a muito tempo abandonadas, não demora muito e tudo não passará de ruínas em que só de longe se poderá contemplar, tal qual outros pontos do litoral Pernambucano, como o Farol e a Casa do Faroleiro, no Cabo de Santo Agostinho. Vamos torcer para que isso mude logo!
  • Muito bom
