Conceição Fort began to be built under the reign of D. João IV, but its current design was a result of the 1670 remodelling. Its plan has a four-point star configuration with bastions in the angles and a gap before the main door. It was restored in 1793. Here, in the surroundings of Cabanas, Portuguese movie director João César Monteiro filmed “A Flor do Mar” (literally "The Sea Flower").
