  • Strolling along the waterfront of Figueira you arrive at this 16th century fortress built to defend the mouth triangular plan. We note the presence of a lighthouse. Remarkable structure although there is little to visit but is worth a look.

  • This triangle-shaped fortress, was built in the late 16th century, on the Hill of Santa Catarina, to defend the port and the Bay of Figueira da Foz. Within that strong there is a Plaza de armas, the barracks and the chapel of Santa Catarina. In the 20th century was built a lighthouse of iron at the center of the square, which helped in the navigation bar of the Mondego River. Unfortunately it has not been possible to visit the Fort inside.

  • Strolling along the waterfront of Figueira will come across this strong characterized by a high red lighthouse. In itself no big deal, just opposite a small beach so named.

  • A beautiful spot for sure! Have only walked around here and taken some (winter) shots though.
  • The Fort is a historic place with a particular beauty. On one side you can see the sea and the extension of the city, on the other, the entrance to the port and the River with the sea. Moreover, it has the history and the architecture of the site, to complete the visit. A piece of Figueira da Foz that compensates for a good break.
