Compared to the fort on Mozambique Island or even the smaller on on Ibo Island this fort is nothing much to write home about. Yet its history and location are worth the visit, even if it takes barely thirty minutes to see. Combine it with a visit to Casso do Ferro and the trainstation; the fort lies halfway between the... 更多

Popped in whilst having a look around Maputo on a Sunday afternoon. The small fort is worth popping your head in for a peruse of the walls. Was asked for a small donation to enter and then left to it. Was there for no more than 15 minutes. Interesting enough but not worth a special trip.
One of the highlights of Maputo. This was possibly the best operated tourist attraction. It had all of the displays in good condition, it was clean, the bathrooms were clean. If you follow the guide it will take you through the history of the colonial Mozambique, definitely a must do there in Maputo
1787 Portuguese fortress in the centre of Maputo. Very interesting items inside the grounds and buildings worth a look. Can walk up to the top of the fortress walls for a good look over the city. And, there are a lot of cannons.

If you're in the area it's worth a quick visit especially if you're into history. If you're not in the area and you're not super into history you could skip this.
This is an old fortress that was rebuilt some time ago. It is a nice place to visit and I loved to take the kids and play pirates (it is actually allowed). It also has a few colonial statues that were removed from different places around town after independence.
The challenge is everything was in Portuguese and we could not read and understand some of the struggles that our people went through,I hope someone will realize that soon for tourists to also understand.
