For those who like to see old canons, old weapons, plus a history museum, in a beautiful European manicured setting, this place was surprisingly great for Copacabana, where little seems to be manicured to this extent. Great for men, women and boys, I think!

Very cheap to enter at $R6. Lovely leafy avenue leading up to the various areas and museum rooms to learn the history of Brazil ending with the giant cannon situated at then end with the tunnels of the arsenal. Fabulous views of Copacabana from all areas. Walking back from the cannons on a cobbled road towards the welcoming restaurant we... More

If you are in Rio, for business or pleasure, do not miss this attraction. It is inexpensive ( US$ 2 1/2) and has a fantastic view. You can also have a drink, breakfast or a quick meal enjoying the scenery . And it is there, very close to everything, at a walking distance from the hotels

This historic fort is ideally located at the south end of Copacabana beach, in Arpoadar, on a promontory jutting into the bay. There is a small entry fee to tour the fort, where inside the history is outlined (but only in Portuguese) and some rooms on display, but the main reason to visit are for the unique views from this...

This fort represents an important Brazilian historical place, but for me it is worth because of the amazing view to the sea and to the Copacabana beach. It is one of the places to go in Rio.

It is worthy to go check this place. It is a pt the end of Copacabana beach. You can take beautiful pics there, visit the museums inside and have a huge breakfast at one of the most famous and antique coffee places, Colombo Bakery!

After having a chat with the statue of Carlos Drummond of Andrade at the end edge of Copacabana beach, visit the Forte and have a brunch with the scenic Rio de Janeiro as your postcard. Don't expect anything spectacular as usual touristic attraction in Rio de Janeiro. Just feel the spirit of being a "carioca", sipping a good coffee and... More
