Forte de Esposende / Castelo de São João Baptista
Bastioned fortress built at the end of the 17th century and beginning of the 18th century by Dom Pedro II. It was part of the defensive plan of the Portuguese coast and aimed to protect the entrance to the Cávado River. It has a rectangular plan and at each angle there is a bastion and a guardhouse. Between the walls, which are quite ruined, the Lighthouse Tower stands out.
