Fortaleza Santa Cruz da Barra

Yesterday was seriously one of the first full days of sunshine that we’ve had all month. It was a little warm, but the breeze kept me cool. We had originally planned on going to a different fort, but it was closed because of the situation in Rio. The fort was founded in 1555 by the French and later taken over by the Portuguese. It was last used as an active military fort in 1955. It’s still used by the military, but not as a defensive fort. It was really cool and I enjoyed the tour.
