The actual forteress is nothing spectacular but it has beautiful views of the cliffs. We had a nice walk around, enjoying the rugged and rocky landscape.

The views on the coastal walk are worth the price of admission to the fort. Very cool to see the fishermen fishing from atop the high cliffs.

From the outside this looks a rather unspectacular Fort, but in a very good position. The small admittance fee (concessions for seniors !) however not only covers visiting the Fort but also an excellent walkway round the peninsular on which the Fort was built. This...More

Taking the 7 km scenic walk back from the lighthouse of Cabo da Saint Vincente, we arrive here. For a small entry fee we can enjoy not only the interestingly built fort, where you can walk on top of the walls and enjoy the view...More

The views from inside and outside the Fortaleza are wonderful. Entry price is quite reasonable especially for seniors. But, other than gorgeous views and open space there is nothing much inside the outer walls. You could probably see a lot of it from outside the...More

After visiting Cabo Sao Vicente we came back to Sagres for the Fortaleza. The views were amazing and the informative plaques spread around the grounds about rock formations birds and plants were appreciated.

Great gift shop with an excellent selection of books on Portuguese history. The best part for me was the nature walk on the point with spectacular views, good explanatory signs and interesting plants. The hours there were well spent.

The fortress wall looks very impressive from the front but actually that's all there is. Once inside the gate the only real relic you'll find is the small 15th-century church. Still it's worth taking a walk all around the promontory, a walkway has been laid...More

The town of Sagres looks somewhat neglected as you pass thorough but then, suddenly, the fort is in front of you and is an imposing and impressive sight. Entrance is cheap and, though there's not much of the actual for to see, there are lots...More

We had no idea when we landed in Faro that our resort was 2 Hrs away in Sagres so we rented a car which was easy and cheap. When we returned to Faro we took train to Lisbon. I think trying to get to Lagos or Sagres via... More
