The first wall was built under the ruling of D. Afonso IV and D. Pedro I, in order to protect the village and the fishermen from North African pirate attacks. In 1582 Filipe II ordered the construction of a new fortress that would be a complement of Santiago de Outão Fortress. This fort has an irregular plan with six points for artillery purposes. Since it is located in a high spot, it has an extended wall down to the river. It houses a Pousada inside. From the top the view over the city, the Sado estuary, the Tróia peninsula and Arrábida mountain is splendid.
