Built between the end of the 17th century and the beginning of the 18th century, Esposende Fort or São João Baptista Fort was erected by D. Pedro II, in order to protect the entry of Cávado river. Initially, it had a star-shaped configuration, but this structure changed in 1886. By this time, an iron ighthouse, along with an attached building, were constructed. The fort became rectangular, comprising a bastion and a bartizan in each of its angles. An 18th century chapel is located inside. (National Trust Building)
