  • Maybe a little underrated because is located close to the city's biggest attractions. This Palace-fortress is a great example of building not only. Its construction started at the beginning of the 16th century Today min. resides here Representative of the Republic of Portugal.

  • Interesting but left us with more questions than answers about the history! Somewhat expected since the military museum is run by the military, but even the tactical/battle information was pretty sparse.
  • Worth a look check entry times
  • A small museum of war located near the sea behind the ritz. Lovely history tour of war, treaty's and history
  • The Military Museum at São Lourenço Fortress is very small, yet quite interesting. Definitely worth visiting, but do not expect to spend more then one hour there, even if you examine each and every exhibit very thoroughly.
  • Place interesting. Worth seeing. Visit for free, but you get used folders and in peace walk through the rooms. You cannot take photos, and promoting is very silent.
