Castelo de São Filipe

Interesting
This fortress, partly taken up by one of the most attractive pousadas in Portugal, dominates the town. Built in 1590, it is adorned with glaze and bastions in the Vauban style. Worthy of note in the chapel are the azulejos from the 18C which recall the life of St Philip, and the superb panoramic view from the top of ramparts.
