The Northeast Sights

Forte dos Reis Magos

Fodor's Review

Natal owes its existence to this impressive five-sided fort. It was built by the Portuguese in 1598, one year before the founding of Natal, and controlled by the Dutch between 1633 and 1654. Visitors can see the old quarters, the chapel, and rusted cannons.
