Fortim de São Bento

Built by Governor Duarte Sodré Pereira to defense that anchorage, this small fort was built in the early 20th century in place of a previous 16th century fortification, dedicated to St. Sebastian, however destroyed by a massive mudslide in 1803. It is a circular tower with revivalist arrangement, keeping the inscription and the original Baroque coat of arms.
