This ancient fort is placed in a rocky spot over the sea. In the inside, it has a hermitage, but its exact construction date remains uncertain. Local legend has it that this place is related to an apparition of the Virgin. A fact is that King D. João III ordered the construction of this fort to defend the beach against Moorish attacks.
