A MUST VISIT spot if you are in Rio. Surrounded by the untouched environment, this military base gives you the Birdseye view to the beaches of Copacabana, Leme and more.

Never misses this place.
The food is expensive, but the place holds a good view and a great history.
You shouldnt expend more than 2 hours there to see everything.
Go in the weekdays, weekeends are too crouded.

FORTE DUQUE de CAXIAS or FORT LEME is a unique sight seeing point of Rio de Janeiro. Wonderful views from Copacabana-posto 6, Corcovado Mt. with Christ statue, Leme, to Sugar Loaf and Guanabara Bay. First you must go up in a curved street to the top. On the way you meet little monkeys begging for food. They eat out of your hand. Full entrance R 4. Open from Tuesday to Sunday (9:30h - 17:00h).

Spectacular panoramic views are the reward for reaching the fort after a stiff climb. Inside the fort itself there are some small exhibitions and historical displays. Lots of monkeys around on the roof with the gun implacements. A café and a shop would be welcome additions.
