The first fortress to be built in Lima river estuary was probably carried out under the ruling of D. Manuel I. In the 17th century this fortress was enlarged, in order to protect Viana do Castelo from pirate attacks. The current fort, displaying a polygonal plan, was erected during Spanish occupation, under the reign of King D. Filipe I of Portugal. The right bank of Lima river has been submerged, due to the construction of the port and shipyards. This defensive structure is now far from the water, next to the place, where the crowded week fair takes place every Friday.
