Description

This was once the site of a historic fort. Visitors now can explore the ruins of this historic fort or simply take in the breathtaking views from the vantage point of the high hill on which the ruins sit.

Short Hike: From the town, the ruins are accessed by a trail of stones that was built by the slaves.

Do mirante do forte se acesso por uma trilha de pedras construída pelos escravos.
