  • Fernandina wall was built in the 14th century, to protect the town and townspeople Port from external attacks enemies and conquerors. Unfortunately, up to the present day survived only some fragments of this great medieval wall. The surviving fragments of this grandiose structures with 1926 year listed national heritage monuments in Portugal. There is an assumption that the total number of towers in this defence construction was about 30, and gates and passageways at least 15.

  • How have transported to another time. A small part of the ancient walls of the port, with a large and beautiful view. To reach the wall, passing through a courtyard of the Church Santa Clara, up some stone steps, you can walk all over the wall extension. The site is not free, but worth it for its beauty, for the view of the harbor. For those who love photos and story can't lose. Open until 5:00 pm

  • Worth going but the entrance is indeed a bit difficult to find. You have to enter the pateo of Igreja de Santa Clara (in the Southeast corner of praça 1º de Dezembro) and then walk a bit further around the church building.
  • Great views but a little difficult to find he entrance.
  • Nice views. Worth going.
