Forte do Presepio, Belem

4.5
The panoramic views from the ramparts are alone well worth a visit to Forte do Presepio. Standing among the original canons, you can look out over Guajará Bay and witness, from a safe distance, the impressive flocks of vultures descending on Ver o Peso market. The fort itself is in the historic center of Belém and home to a small museum where you can take a tour and learn about the local history. A collection of ceramics and native Tupi and Marajoara artifacts dates from before the arrival of the Portuguese to the region.

  • This fort, in addition to the beautiful external view it provides, has in its interior a brief review of the indigenous ancestors, their weapons and forms of burial. It's worth checking out!

  • Historical touristic point of Belém, a direct view to the market of the see-O-Peso, a beautiful view to enjoy the late afternoon.
