The Duque de Caxias fortress, was built between 1776 and 1779 in order to warn the other fortifications of Guanabara Bay of the approach of any enemy vessels. Throughout the history it was called Forte da Vigia and Forte da Fortificação. The official name is Forte Duque de Caxias, but the place is well known as Forte do Leme.

Many people who come to visit Rio de Janeiro don’t have the opportunity to visit this place, it is not very commented and also, there is the Forte de Copacabana that is way more popular in the city, but the visit is worthwhile.

In this RioLIVE! Activity we will take you on a special tour to a relatively unknown part of town. The tour includes a walk through an ecologically preserved area of the Atlantic Forest (Mata Atlântica) and a visit to the historic sites of the fort. It is possible to have contact with monkeys. From there, we are gonna enjoy the views with fortified areas and city attractions such as Copacabana, Cristo Redentor, Baía de Guanabara, Pedra da Gávea and Pão de Açúcar. So, how about exploring a new place in Rio de Janeiro and enjoying some beautiful views from a different perspective? Come to our RioLIVE! Activity!!! Grab your camera, sunscreen and comfy shoes and let’s do this together!
