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.

  • There are some cannons 16th century welll preserved. A nice river view on top of the fort wall is the best in the place.
