Ilha de Fernando de Noronha Things to Do: 64 reviews and 115 photos
There are two main spots for observation of the wonderfull sunset in the island, that you must see!! One is the fortress called
Forte dos Remédios , near the vilage with the same name, and the other is from the fortress Forte S. Pedro do Boldró in the beach of Boldró.
The reason for so many fortresses, as you will be able to see, is that the island was, for a long time, used as a defense spot...
The island was discovered in 1503, three years after the dicovery of Brazil, by Americo Vespúcio...for its privileged location and the fact that it was isolated by the sea, the island was for many ocasions included in military strategies, and also used as a place for exile. That´s why you´ll find fortresses, old canons and an ancient presidium...
Nowadays, there´s only one person arrested in the island!! hihihih
From the Forte S. Pedro do Boldró you will be able to have a nice view of the so called "Morro Dois Irmãos", which means "two brothers", since they are two mountains placed next to each other, with the same shape. The locals call it Morro "Fafa de Belem", which is a brazilian singer with huge breast hehehehe =D
