Visit Fort Whaling - Sagres

The Fortress of Whaling, located in the Town of Sagres, was built around 1573, a site of a previous similar building. The fortress, of triangular plan, was designed to protect local fishermen and housed in a local chapel dedicated to Our Lady of Guia. Currently only a few are visible foundation walls due to the advanced state of disrepair and neglect.
