    Located at Guanabara Bay. You have to take a marine boat to get there which costs around 5 reais. This castle were build to control the comercial ships that get into the country. This is also where the royal family threw its last party, 6 days after that the Emperor(Dom Pedro) was kick out from the Brasil.
