This maritime fortress was built under D. João III or under D. Sebastião reign upon the ruins of a medieval castle. It would be remodelled in the end of the 17th century. It is a trapezium-shaped building set in a hill over the sea with access from the beach through the stairs built in the cliff. The front of the building has a door protected by two bastions. The inside was converted into a cafeteria and a viewpoint.
