“This is a fort?”

Fortaleza da Nossa Senhora da Conceicao
Ranked #6 of 46 things to do in Maputo
Attraction details
Reviewed 13 January 2014

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

Some walls and a paltry exhibit or two. There was supposed to be a museum - not sure what happened to it. I am sure it has an interesting history but like most of Maputo is grossly negelcted.

As one of the oldest buildings in the city (1787), an imposing structure oozing with history. But just a great pity that like most of Maputo, it is run-down, dirty and surrounded by litter. It would seem that the new dispensation wants to forget about their colonial past, allowing beautiful old buildings such as this to go to wrack and ruin, instead of capitalising on its tourism potential. However, it’s still worth a visit! Just read up in Wikipedia on its history first, as there are virtually no information boards.

The fort is usually empty but sometimes there are nice parties. The fort is good for a photo but there is not much to see
