  • The new part of the fortress houses a sports centre of excellence, where they train athletes of first level, and a sports Museum, however, the major attraction is the ancient Fort of San José with your story of the founding of the city of Rio de Janeiro, where there is a small museum, and the visually stunning Guanabara Bay. To get there, there is a short walk, but with some ups and downs, so it is good to use comfortable shoes and hat, sunglasses and sunblock on sunny days. Admission is free and is forbidden to take photos with professional type cameras.

  • Conhecidissimo and beautiful museum that the Brazilian Army take over and present a didactic way and at the same time you enters into the history of Brazil.

  • A pleasant stroll with family or friends, to know the Museum, other structures of the fortress and still enjoying the Guanabara Bay in a well-hidden corner in Urca. Super recommend. The visits are guided and schedule.

Where to stay in Rio de Janeiro

Accommodations in Rio de Janeiro cover as diverse a spectrum as the city itself. At the top end, you can find plenty of luxury hotels along the beaches of Zona Sul, the city's southern zone, which includes the renowned Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. For something to suit a budget, but with good beach access, look around the less crowded neighborhoods of Catele and Flamengo. If you want to stay as centrally as possible, without feeling like you're in a business district, look for lodgings in the colorful, bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
