It is a jewel of military architecture, rising upon the north hill of the city. This fort was built in the 18th century, in order to complete the defence line of Elvas fortified square. Located in a high spot, this fort was occupied by Spanish artillery during Linhas de Elvas battle in 659. It has four bastions, four ravelins and several gaps, so that its canons could beat the enemies as they approached.
