    Hi Nuno,

    The fort is not original, unfortunately. Following a siege in 1757, the fort was destroyed by the French. It was rebuilt in the 1950s using original plans and is now a tourist attraction.

    will wait to see if any other Scottish members add any, Edinburgh for example is a castle / fortress and is a good more stratigraphic placed like some others in this thread

    ideal Nuno, i just love this type of History!
    That is beautiful
    What an amazing place.

    This one is a shame.
    Its located in Estoril and called Fort of S. Teodósio da Cadaveira.
    It was built in 1642 and is now abandoned.
    It is being used by drug dealers and prostitutes.
