Ternate Fort Kalamata


Benteng Kalamata was built by Portuguese in 1540. In 1609, this fort was taken by the Dutch and renovated by Pieter Both. In this fort, we can find 4 bastions and a well. This fort is also called Benteng Santa Lucia or Benteng Kayu Merah (red wood fort). From this fort, we can enjoy the beautiful scene of Tidore and Maitara islands floating on the blue sea.
