Decided to visit last minute and glad we did. Stunning views and interesting watching the Portuguese men on the cliff edges fishing. It is a delightful visit and price wise it is a nice way to spend a few hours exploring
Well worth a visit, if you're within a short drive of the area, if only for the views over the Atlantic. They are simply amazing.

I visited the Fortaleza during my trip in Algarve. It is very close to capo sao Vincente and I think that the Fortaleza offers a more magic and complete view on the ocean expecially at the sunset.

We had no idea when we landed in Faro that our resort was 2 Hrs away in Sagres so we rented a car which was easy and cheap. When we returned to Faro we took train to Lisbon.
