I loved this “window” at the ancient Fort of Arrifana but sadly it no longer exists.
The old fort as it was a year ago…an old ruin, but a place to take in the views and reflect.
We returned a year later to find…
I am not sure this has been sympathetically restored. Look at the cement work – I think a chimpanzee could have made a better job!
The 16th Century cliff-top fort which once protected the Tuna fishing industry is situated on the Ponta da Arrifana. It is well worth a visit for the spectacular view encompassing the Needle Stone (Pedra da Agulha) and along the Costa Vicentina. I won’t post pictures of the views please come armed with your camera and decide for yourself!
Why not bring a bottle of wine and enjoy the sunset! Alternatively enjoy a meal at the adjoining restaurant Por do sol.
