Linda vista para Copacabana do alto de uma trilha pavimentada dentro do Forte. Beautiful view of Copacabana from the top of a paved trail inside the Fort.

Amazing views of both Copacabana beach & Sugarloaf from the fortress on top op Morro do Leme. Short walk (15min) up the hill where you will see many small monkeys! The entrance is at the military base in the end of Leme beach. Small entrance fee of BRL 4,00. One of Rio's best kept secrets!

An old fort, perfect for sightseeing! Another way to gaze on Copacabana's coastline, from the top of this mountain. Mind the rules to enter and check opening hours! There's a small entrance fee too

Once you get to the top of the fort, you'll have a great view of all Copacabana beach and neighborhood. Entrance fee is cheap.
