Fortress of Sagres

Located a few kiómetros from Cape St. Vincent, it was commissioned by Prince Henry the Navigator, after his brother King Don Pedro donated all the lands and adjacent villas Saint Vincent and Sagres. Victim of numerous attacks, including by Sir Francis Drake in 1587 and especially by the earthquake in 1775 when an enourmous wave went overthe height of the rock, this fortress has undergone numerous reconstructions and transformationes. Inside I must highlight the Church of Our Lady of Grace of Sagres. Studies think the current church which was built in 1570, replaced on the same place the the original built in 1459 by Prince Henry.
