About Forte Dos Reis Magos, Natal
A structure worthy of its name, the Forte dos Reis Magos looks spectacular standing alone, looking fierce at the tip of the city, ready to guard Natal even today. An impressive five-sided fort, built in the 16th century, the city would not have existed if it wasn’t for the Forte dos Reis Magos. Controlled by the Dutch for a short period of time, the fort has done well to protect Natal from any outside invasion.
Inside the fort, each room had a designated purpose which is available in both Portuguese and English. The chapel, cannons and the soldier’s quarters have been well preserved and open to the public for viewing. There’s a small office where the Dutch carried out their administrative operations, but compared to the stunning views of the city and the sea beyond the office can seem a little disappointing.

Forte Dos Reis Magos, Natal Reviews
A really nice tourist attraction (they close the at 4pm) and the best spot for you to take a nice picture of Newton Navarro bridge. I really recommend you to stay until the sundown.
The long path you walk down to get to the fort is pretty, it's a shame that all I heard was that it wasn't the safest thing to do. The security people said it was generally safe before 5 PM.
An ancient fortress, well maintained, located on a beatiful beach. The guided tour is interesting
