Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This fort is located about ½ a kilometer to the left of the cruiseship dock. Admission is 3 euros for adults and 1 euro for seniors (65+).

The fort is the oldest in the Atlantic at over 500 years old. It still houses the headquarters of the General in charge of this area.
.
Admission grants you the right to visit the old ramparts and defensive positions within the fort and to view multiple displays of historic military gear over the centuries. Unfortunately many of the descriptions are only in Portuguese. It is well worth a visit. Allow 30 to 45 minutes.

If you like forts, cannons and pirates, this is worth the visit. You'll have to read the displays here to learn about the pirates, but it's pretty cool. It's also free to wander around, you can't beat that.
