All reviews confeitaria colombo military history copacabana beach military base entry fee interesting museum worth a visit sugarloaf mountain cannon guns bunker artillery portuguese brazil installation century rio
You can get good views back to the beach and Sugar Loaf mountain from here and there are plenty of benches to rest on as well as a number of nice looking cafes. The museum itself is made up of several areas but as there...More
You can not believe that you can find here. Security place, excelente restaurants. You can lunch of dinner seeing on of most beautiful postcard of Copacabana beach. The Confeitaria Colombo is one most traditional restaurante and offer delicious plates.
Dirt cheep entry fee, 6 real only.
Start with the English subtitled video for an excellent overview.
No English signage on the displays but you can get the gist easily enough.
The battery tour is very interesting.
This is an extremely interesting historical site. The bunker was built with German pre-First War technology. Take some time to check the energy stored by gravity, used to operate the complex, and to observe the serial human calculators used to point the cannons.
We found it interesting despite no English descriptions. Tours only in Portuguese. If I would do it again, I would plan to enjoy a meal at one of the eating places on the grounds, does not require you to view the fort. Good views of...More

Plenty of choice, although they got busy quickly.
The fort itself is interesting, although all of the history in noted in Portuguese only. The...More

Most people wander to the fort to view the Copoacabana beach. On a Tuesday access to the fort we were told was free. The museum has some interesting exhibits that gets the interested visitors going off to Google to find more information on the history...More
This is an interesting military fort on a headland between Ipanema and Copacabana beaches, where you can wander or sit and eat and get great views of Copacabana Beach. Going underground and seeing all the areas and rooms there was very interesting. There is also...More
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful
draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
