Good nature area. You can go by car or just walking from the left side of jurere beach. You have to walk in stone sidewalk until you find the fort, if you like you can go down and find the beach underneath

I went to visit this fort, there ware not many people so it was quite. Very stunning views from the sea. A must to go and visit if you like historical buildings.

See title since apart from its interesting construction and Outlook over the entrance of the bay, there is really nothing special to mention (about 8 Rs entrance fee)

A beautiful fort that is in great shape, preserved by the Federal University of the State of Santa Catarina. The visit is well worthwhile, but wear comfortable shoes as you will be climbing steep hills with uneven footing. There you may find lacework for sale by talented women that still craft the same kinds of articles that immigrants from the Azores Islands used to.

It is definetely worth the trip there.

Besides seeing the old buldings there are also lots of canons from back then (this was my favorite part).
As a bonus you can see the sea from up there, breathtaking!!
The time you need for it will depend if you want to read all the explanations on each part or if you just want to quickly go through it.
