Nice old fortress. Entrance is €0,50 and worth it. The views you get are amazing.

Um verdadeiro ícone do Litoral Tripeiro, merece uma visita ao interior. Há um pequeno bar sempre aberto, um pequeno museu e uma vista privilegiada do topo.

El fuerte fue construido en el siglo XVII para defender la costa de las posibles incursiones de piratas provenientes del norte de Africa

Un petit fort sur la plage de Porto. Il faut marcher plus d'un kilomètre mais c'est sympa.
