  • During my stay in Porto, I visited this fortress. There is this Foss Castle before moving west from the center of Porto and heading out to the Atlantic Ocean. It is a fortress rather than a castle. The view of the sea from the fortress was wonderful.

  • Situated at the mouth of the Douro was part of the defense of the city. A little abandoned. In its interior to a ruin of imposing church. From its buttresses you can see the mouth and its lighthouse. It was one of the Portuguese bastions in the Napoleonic Wars.

  • Good location but completely let dacying, with a little more interest could be a nice spot in a sea trip
  • Impressive waves here. Would have been a surfer's paradise, although maybe the fact that they are cordoned off says that it is probably too dangerous to surf. Got some really good pictures though. Definitely worth a visit. Bus route 500 will get you there and back
