  • Fortress open to the public had relatively recently. It has had several uses, including in military prison. I recommend the guided tour in Spanish, very detailed, with special attention the events there that occurred in violent and scatological nature. Keep in mind that in these lands the Spaniards we are the "bad movie". The views are breathtaking from above. Recommended. Travel duration 2 hours.

  • Don't miss the visit. It must be done with Guide to learn about the history of the fuerte-carcel. All information and interesting anecdotes. Rises with the car to a parking lot then there are a few mini-bus which pick up up above.

  • Very interesting. Unlike the other forts. There is a part which are subterranean corridors as well but Straits pretty cool. And the strong outside is very nice.

  • Excelente arquitectura militar portuguesa do século XVII. A vista é fabulosa.
  • Uma jóia do patrimonio. Vista espetacular e um edificio único a visitar.
  • Surprising strong located near Elvas, recently restored. It is impressively large. There are spectacular views of the city of Elvas and Badajoz in the distance. They built with technical assistance from the British to defend Spain from Portugal.
