Forte Marechal Luz, Sao Francisco do Sul

(4.5/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Forte Marechal Luz presents both a maritime history lesson and a convenient spot for family photographs with the coastline of Santa Catarina as a natural background. This fort, which was built in 1909 on the site of an earlier military structure (once used for harbor defense by the early Portuguese settlers), sits on the tip of João Dias Hill, from the top of which an unobstructed view of the northern coast opens up. The fort is currently maintained by the Brazilian navy, and you can visit it when you climb a short trail from the small beach located just below the hill. Put Forte Marechal Luz at the forefront of your travel plans using our Sao Francisco do Sul vacation planner.

  • Very beautiful place, with interesting history. Worth the visit. We did a quick ride, because it was very hot. Recommend sunscreen and insect repellent.

  • Compensates for the visit. Location has stairs and has a cost of $2.00 per adult for the visit, but the value is negligible near the wonder that vista offers.

  • Worth the visit to the Museum, he is small, but the view you have on the way and upstairs at the Fort is spectacular.
