The place is about 1h away from the main city (depending on traffic) and it's quite rundown at the moment. We were very underwhelmed. At least we saw there they have a full restoration plan to bring the place back to life. When that happens, it'll be much much nicer. The only reason to come to this place right now... More

This fort is part of the Brazilian history. Founded by the Dutch, the fort was part of the ancient Dutch colony in Brazil. The conservation of the fort is not very good, but it is a good to visit.

It is some 30 minutes outside of Recife but most certainly worth the (full-day)trip. Well restored with nice&clean beach to relax, with constant fresh food servings of great variety
