Pessegueiro Fort is located south from Porto Covo. Filipe III ordered its construction in 1603. This fortress perished in the destruction caused by pirates along with the Spanish attacks during Restoration War. In the end of the 17th century a new fort was erected under D. Pedro II reign that is being presently recovered. It is situated in front of a rocky island. In the south there is a never-ending sea of sand up to Vila Nova de Milfontes. It has inspired both poets and singers, such as Rui Veloso.
