Cruises from Macapa
Macapa, Brazil, is a river port and capital of the territory of Amapa, lying on the northernmost and largest arm of the Amazon River delta, opposite the Marajo archipelago. The city lies exactly on the Equator, and the football stadium is the only one in the world where each half of the field is located in opposite hemispheres. Macapa retains some of the history of the region in its monuments. One of these is Sao Jose Fort, at the entrance to the city.
The Fort is an example of French influence on the culture of the area and one of the best preserved military monuments in Brazil.
