The Holy Cross fortrees located in the left edge of the Bay in the city of Niteroi is one of the oldest construction in Brazil, it was built in 1565! they arrested many enemies of the crown here and they were forced to stay in small cells...so you can bet, going to the Prison in Brasil always have been a tough task!

Holy ross fortress means in Portuguese, Fortaleza Santa Cruz, one of the hidden attractions of Rio that fir sure will make your day!;))))))
