A large UFO that is situated on the landscape, it adds a contemporary design to the area and remains in dialogue with the landscape. The building breaks up the horizon and transforms it into a Martian landscape, ready to be discovered.
If you are given a tour of Niteroi, I highly recommend the Arrows for an afternoon or evening visit. There are many sporting activities, the water is clean and the area is quiet. It's mostly a family beach. There's a stretch of road that's ideal for walking or jogging, and the beach is easily accessible along the promenade as many buses circulating. Also, after the center is sunbathing a few blocks, so one can "climb" to lunch and back to the beach quickly.
The Fortress of Santa Cruz de Barra can be found on the eastern side of the bar Guanabara Bay, in the district of Jurujuba municipality of Niterói, in the Brazilian state of Rio de Janeiro. That was a mouthful haha. Fires across the Fortaleza de São João and the Forte da Laje Tamandaré, was the main defense bar structure in Guanabara Bay, and in the city of Porto as well as Rio de Janeiro during the colonial period and the Empire. The Fortress attracts an average of two thousand visitors per month. Guided tours are available every hour on the hour, lasting about 45 minutes. Currently, it houses the divisional Artilharia da 1st Divisão of Exército. I recommend getting there for the view you have (see the photos) and the fort itself, if you're interested in history.
If you like paragliding, then this is the place for you. I have acquaintances who always tell me that they are always looking for new places to do paragliding. Well this place is not only used by instructors, but also by fans of this activity. The view is spectacular and I'm sure you will enjoy it.
If you are in Niteroi you should go to this mall. In the evening, after sunset, you can shop around, walk, eat, shop or see a movie at the theatre, like we did. It is very neat and has very nice shops. It easily accessible and has parking. As in almost all Brazilian shopping centres, know that they charge for this service.
If you want to get the best view of Guanabara Bay you must climb this hill. As can be seen in the photos the views and the sunset are spectacular. This is the place to relax and enjoy the bay, Rio do Janeiro and Niteroi. There is a hostel here where you can have a snack and also there is a paragliding school. 100% recommended, but the images speak for themselves.
