  • The Fort of São João Batista was ready in 1647, with its construction beginning in 1570 and is located in a strategic position, dominating the mouth of the Douro River. As it is a building of the Portuguese State, I thought that the public was not allowed to visit the interior, because there is no information abroad in this sense. After reading other reviews here on Tripadvisor, i see that you can visit and for free, as long as it is open. Anyway, I walked around this great building and found the outer walls low, something easy to transposing in the time of armed conflict.

  • 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
