Reasonable entry fee. Very nice views and historical layout. We had a nice time. We were surprised that there were several nice restaurants inside.

You can't miss this place if you walk Copacabana beach. The view from it is nice but the displays are not translated to English which takes away from the experience a bit.

Good place to visit and right next to the beach. Remember to wear a shirt if you're coming from the beach, also a nice cafe there to checkout

The fort provides good views across the beach front of Rio. It is cheap to enter (just over GBP£1 per person) but there are no English translations of the displays so unfortunately if you can’t speak Portuguese you won’t get the most out of the...More

To be honest, we went for the food at Cafe 18, stayed for the view, and were surprised and delighted by the little museum. Explanation all in Portuguese though, so you might need to use your translator app, or read between the lines.

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

No, I don't think so. Plus, it's cobbled stones throughout the site but they're quite even.
