Photographer's Note

On the XVI and XVII Centuries many of these fortresses were built along the coast, from Lisbon, every 5 to 10 kms (3 to 7 miles) to protect the City from eventual ennemies coming by Sea. There are more than 20 of these fortresses from Lisbon to Roca Cape (40 Kms away). Many of them are in ruins but some of them were rebuilt on the last 50 years. This fortress is only 12 kms (8 miles) from Lisbon, along the right side of Tejo River ..
