After the restoration of independence, the perspective of a prolonged war against Spain led to the fortification of Lisbon and, particularly, of Cascais port. A fortified square was built near the sea, connecting to the already existing small fortress of Nossa Senhora da Luz. It underwent major works after 1755 earthquake. In 1871, D. Luís converted the former palace of the military governor in a Royal summer house. In 1963, it became the summer house of the President of the Republic. Inside the fort there is still the chapel of Nossa Senhora da Vitória. The Citadel is being partly adapted to house a Pousada.
