    Being located only 15 minutes from the Almeida, on the Spanish side of the border, this is the "real fuerte de concepcion".
    Abandoned for many decades, its now private property and the new owner has began its recovery. With a 4 star hotel in the main square.
    Been there today.
    Its a wonderful place.
    Will post detailed photos when possible.

    I know this is a spanish fortification, but this is a great place and it was an adventure to look for it.
    Keep posting guys.

    This is the Portuguese fort of kilwa kisiwani, located in African costline.
    Abandoned after the loss of the island strategic importance, it was destroyed to prevent capture by other forces.
