Sagres Fortress

Mythical, magical and impressive...

Rising at the top of Sagres Point, this fortress may have been built by Infant D. Henrique (the forerunner of Portuguese Discoveries) in the 15th century. It was later severely damaged by English pirate Francis Drake and by 1755 earthquake. Even though current restoring works have changed the character of the remaining former fortress, this location still preserves the spirit of the past.
The Fortress stands out for its grandeur and the facilities to organize venues and corporate events. The only difficulty is choosing between the multimedia room, with capacity for 100 people, and the restaurant lounge, which hosts 40 persons.


  • "Main place of a maritime defense system in war, the fortress offers a fantastic panorama with views over the ocean and to the Cabo de Vincent."
