Benteng Tolukko

Lonely Planet review

The smallest and cutest of the town forts, little Benteng Tolukko was the first Portuguese stronghold on Ternate (1512). It has beautifully manicured floral gardens and attractive sea views; stroll among the turrets for a sweeping panorama. If it's locked, knock on the door of the family home next door. They will have the key.
