Still a military base, this fort is mostly a museum which explains a period of history post-monarchy. A small charge is payable, and this means that the area is very safe and has the best restaurant views in Copa.

The fee to enter the fort is almost nothing and it's really worth a visit. Not just for the fantastic views and nice confeitaria Colombo were you can grab a bite but it gives you an insight in Rio's work of defences trough time.

The fort is definitely worth the 6 Real entry. There is a small museum, you can walk around and through the fortifications, inside and out, there are views of the city, cafes and toilets.

The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional
and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood
is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and
traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of
everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs,
chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and
more live side-by-side. There are options for all
price points and tastes. However, the most powerful
