Sao Tiago Fort

Sao Tiago Fort

This fortress was built to protect the city from pirates who once sailed in the North Atlantic. It was used by the military until 1992, when it was converted to a public space. Today it’s the location of the Contemporary Art Museum and offers expansive views of the sea from the battlements.
