The tour on the Duque de Caxias Fort (Leme’s Fort) consists of an ecological walk in the protected area of Atlantic Forest and a visit to the place’s historical site.

This fort’s military history is full of events. Its officers took part in revolts like the Copacana Fort’s (1922), the São Paulo Dreadnought Revolt (1924), the response against the merchant ship Baden (1930), the 1932 Revolution, the Communism Coup Attempt (1935), the Integralist Movement (1938), World War II (1945) and on the Tamandaré Cruiser Intervention (1955). The culture of our country lives behind these walls that tell us stories about the shaping of our present history.
