It’s amazing from an historical point of view, but it would be much better if it was taken care of and if there were signs telling its history.

This is probably the best sunset view of the island. To get there, you have to go up a little ramp located at Vila dos Remedios, just a few meters from the Church. Recommend it!

You don't go for the fort LOL just to see the views, there are a couple of old cannons, that's it. The views are amazing tho and it is worth the trek!

This Portuguese fortress offers beautiful views of the coastline and fantastic sunset experience. Unfortunaltely it is poorly kept and maintained.

We got caught in a rainstorm so there was a spectacular rainbow the whole time. Nice ruins of an old fort on top of hill with a nice view of harbor with tons of dolphins. A little far away to see well but you see...More

A must go place for families, where you can learn a little bit about the history of the island. You can see beautiful views from the sea and the sunset.

Beautiful views in Noronha is kind of unecessary comment... The old place gives a stunning view from several beaches and amazing pictures in the old construction scenary and a peaceful sunset.
