  • Fortress whose construction was started in 16 century to defend the mouth of the river and Have, accordingly, and the Port City by the sea. The fortress was significantly reconstructed during the war for independence from Portugal. Now here is the Instituto de Defesa Nacional, but part of the fortress is available for review.
