Jericoacoara, fort

The Portuguese had established a rudimentary fortification of palisades in Jericoacoara during their campaign against the French in Maranhão. This fortification was occupied by the Dutch during their conquest of Ceará in 1637 according to Barretto (Barretto 2010: 53), but further research is necessary because no Dutch archival references have been found as yet and it is not clear how long and in what way there was a Dutch presence in Jericoacoara during the period 1637-1644. There is no indication of the location of this object and there are no details on its construction or garrison.
