5 reviews of Fort of Peniche

The old Fortress of Peniche


Peniche Fortress was the largest entry point by sea in ancient Portugal. During its existence was for various uses such as providing a safe haven for refugees from Boer early twentieth century, or serve as a prison for political prisoners between 1934 and 1974. Since 1984 it houses the City Museum. Access to the fort is free of charge. Worth a visit even if you enter the museum, since from the fortress you can see beautiful views of the coast and the Consolaçao beach. I highly recommended a visit.
