Things to do in Sagres

If you are thinking of what to do in Sagres, visit the incredible Sagres Fortress.
It is within easy walking distance from the cottage & apartment.
Set upon high cliffs and surrounded by the Atlantic on three sides, it is a dramatic setting.
Historically fascinating and dating back to the 15th century, the fortress was a sailing school with Henry the Navigator before being destroyed by Sir Francis Drake in 1587 and then rebuilt in 1793.
There are cannon dotting the steep cliff walls, a chapel, and an amazing huge carved stone compass set into the ground.
Windblown and exposed to the elements, the fortress has incredible views along both south and west coasts up to the Cabo sao Vicente lighthouse.
