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.

It’s a nice historical place to visit. The panoramic view is amazing.
This is a great place for military history people. The place is a bit of a walk probably not good for anyone with mobility problems are small children lots of places to get hurt.
Beautiful and historic point to be visited in Natal.
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.
An ancient fortress, well maintained, located on a beatiful beach. The guided tour is interesting
