Forte Marechal Luz, Sao Francisco do Sul

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.

  • A fantastic place filled with stories and everything with a symbolic cost of $2.00 (not paid for a bottle of water). Who love history and everything based on documents there is a beautiful view of the beaches around and without cleaning and organization q This Fort has, organization and military discipline

  • We spent a weekend at the Fort. Month of March already reassured the view straight to praia do Forte enchants, security is a military barracks level everything very well maintained and organized, suffers a little clean up but the policy adopted is normal. We sure did stand there and in low season really pays off.

  • The attraction is inside an army barracks. Are R $2.00 per person and you can go with the car until the highest point where is located the Museum. But the main attraction is the view of the Bay. Choose a clear day and the ride will be worth worth.
