“A Good Sight If You Have Time”

Fortaleza da Nossa Senhora da Conceicao
Ranked #6 of 46 things to do in Maputo
Attraction details
Reviewed July 12, 2014

Probably worth doing if you have time. I took a guided tour of Maputo, and this was the final stop. I'm glad I had a guide to tell me what everything was; otherwise I would have had to guess.

A very interesting historical monument, with an interesting collection of old artillery pieces, and a good way to have a crash course on Mozambique's colonization history.

Really scary stuff. Its freaking to come closer to those things and see how much they weigh! There were differenct kinds of old-time artillery. I wonder how folks managed them then.

This place has been neglected, although there are a few statues and friezes. You can climb the steps to the ramparts which offer a slightly elevated view of the city centre.

It has walls... It has many statues and busts. Unfortunately they have all been removed from other places in the city and dumped there.the tour guide did not even have any idea who most of them were. The place smelt disgusting. Would not recommend
