  • The Fort is amazing, a beautiful colonial military construction on the reef. Gets a little away from the center of the reef, but arrive easily by taxi/uber. The musue itself leaves a little to be desired, but it has a very interesting collection. Worth the visit!

  • When I went, the Museum was winning body. Pretty interesting stuff, but the guide was young and tried to speak as much as you can. Probably the Museum will be much better in the future. But it's a sensational place to know the story at the time of colonization.

  • 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!

  • The fortress of Brum. Dating from 1630, the Fort dates from the history of Recife since the time of the captaincy of Pernambuco. His name is a reference to Johan de Bruyne, then President of the political Council of Olinda. At that time, the region suffered a lot from invasions of British, Dutch and French, in search of the great offer of pau-brasil, cotton and sugar, the region produced. Between the comings and goings of Dutch and Portuguese domain, was built the fortress of Brum that equipped with 7 guns of different sizes, it was very important to maintain the security and stability of the reef. For your relevance in the history of Brazil, was declared by the National historical and artistic heritage. Today, it is held by the army, and also houses a chapel and a museum with photos, weapons and uniforms that honor the story of struggle of Brazilian soldiers.

  • A place that tells a little of the history of Brazil. Has a better than the Forte das Cinco Pontas. The structure despite being well kept, some of the showrooms are in need of a revitalization and better lighting. The arms room during the weekend does not open, this is bad because most people who visit the site normally have available only the weekends to visit. Need a training guides too. The site has a free parking area. Input value: $5.00.

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.
