  • Also called Cheese Castle, it is an ancient defensive fortification, built in the seventeenth century to prevent incursions by the pirates of North Africa. It was built in a place where there was a huge stone in a rounded shape, similar to a cheese. In other comments I see that they paid 0.50 euro cents, but no one asked us for money. At the top, there is a small exhibition by an artist, with paintings and different craftsmen, all for sale. The surrounding area is surrounded by rococas and golden sand. We arrive with the circular tourist bus, which takes a tour around Porto, and you get off and get on whenever you want. It's a very interesting option.

  • During my stay in Porto, I visited Caillo Castle. The building facing the Atlantic Ocean was more of a fortress than a castle. The entrance fee was cheap and casual, and there was a turret in the hall, and the scenery was wonderful.

  • This was a surprise visit for us. We saw the fort from a distance and decided to check it out. We were glad we did. Entrance fee is €0.50. The fort is well maintained and offers plenty of photo ops of the Atlantic and beaches. There is a small museum and cafe down below.
  • At entering we were quickly welcomed by a host that explained the entrance fee is 50 (euro) cents. Pretty cheap for a well maintained fort and weapons exhibition. Plenty of photo ops around the canons and view at the Atlantic. Worth all of my 50 cents!
