Forte Ponta da Bandeira

Located in front of the entrance to Bensafrim's river bank, this fortification guaranteed the defense of the old port. It was built in the 17th century and it has a trench, a drawbridge and a grandiose door of arms. Inside, there is a small chapel with tiles of the 18th century. A privileged belvedere over Lagos.
