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
We visited this fort just after Christmas the weather was perfect and the fort really interesting entry price really reasonable and the walk around to the voice of the ocean really educational. Nothing much inside the fort and the guide was €1 but was just...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.

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 public transport is either impossible or not worth the effort. Our car for 4-5 days was about $150
