Algarve Heritage Armação de Pêra Fortress
Fortress Built in ancient times to defend against attacks from pirates, was rebuilt during the reign of the King El Rey Dom João III. It was remodeled during the Wars of the Restoration and again in the eighteenth century, when the plant was created in a star shape.
The last phase of construction that is known is the first decades of the eighteenth century, when it was built the small chapel named as: Capela de Santo António (St. Anthony Chapel), or Capela de Nossa Senhora dos Aflitos (Our Lady of Sorrows Chapel), for the protection of the fishermen.
