The Northeast Sights

Fortaleza do Brum (Military Museum)

  • Pr. Comunidade Luso Brasileira
  • Recife Antigo

Fodor's Review

To safeguard their control, the Dutch wisely, yet futilely built more than one fortress. In this one (c. 1629) you find reminders of those precarious days in the on-site Museu Militar, with its collection of old cannons, infantry weapons, and soldiers' utensils; there's even a skeleton of a soldier that dates from 1654. The fort also has a restaurant.
