“A no miss opportunity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

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

“Great views over Copacabana”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

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 location. There is a nice cafe and shop on the grounds, and from the street and from on top of the armaments, you get great views of the beach - some of the best photo opportunities out to Sugarloaf. Worth a quick visit.

“Beautiful view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

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.

“Lindo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

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!
