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.

  • Military base, charge 2.00 per person to climb due to the Museum to be at the top, a museum that I personally didn't think it's worth, the cool thing is to see the strong and cannons, the eyes not worth it. But I think that has to be visited, after all you don't have much choice in the city.

  • With an impeccable organization the Strong Light Marshal deserves to be visited. Lookout Mountain you have a great view, the beach still around is beautiful and very well cared for.
