    This is a museum housed in a colonial Fort and that worth to be visited. My experience with museums in Recife started badly yesterday, I went with my family to the Museum of the city of Recife, situated in the Forte das Cinco Pontas, and I was extremely disappointed with the lack of site collection, out of the Museum, we got in the car and went to the fortress of Brum. Then we can have a really valid experience. The Forte do Brum has a much, much better than the forte das cinco pontas. The whole family loved the visitation and was impressed with the care and dedication of the soldiers of the Army (the Museum is managed by the Brazilian Army) that act as guides. Congratulations!

    A museum that tells a lot about the History of colonization of Recife and Olinda. A good place to visit and buy some more of historical knowledge. Worth

    FORTE DE SÃO JOÃO BATISTA (FORTE DO BRUM) located in the square of the Luso-Brasilera community - from 9.30 to 16 hs in 1629 the Portuguese begin to build it and are the Dutch people who end up in 1630. They called it strong Bruyne (then deriving in Brum). In 1654 the Portuguese reconquered the city and begin its restoration in 1667, given the importance to the defence. The works are completed in 1690 and there is additional work concluding in 1715. He had some role in different historical facts of the city as in the Pernambuco revolution of 1817, or during the Confederation of Ecuador in 1824. Since 1987 is administered by the army of Brazil and was restored and opened to the public displaying weapons, English and Portuguese cannons and relics found at the site. There are photos and objects related to the participation of the Brazilian air force in World War II

Where to stay in Recife

It's no surprise that the vast majority of accommodations in Recife crowd around the city's long expanses of shorefront. Consider the southern coastal neighborhood of Boa Viagem for instant access to miles of vibrant beachfront, the prime location for locals and tourists alike to make the most of the sunshine. As well as high-end hotels and beach resorts, you can opt to stay in a range of fun, budget hostels, thanks to Recife's ever-growing popularity among backpackers. If you want something a bit quieter, look to the nearby historical town of Olinda, just 6 km (3.7) north of the city center. From there, you can easily make day--or night--trips to Recife proper.
