Fortress of Sana Catarina

Fortress of Sana Catarina

The Fortress of Santa Catarina de Ribamar kept watch over the mouth of the river Arade and defended Portimão from invaders. It doesn’t look too different nowadays except for a cafeteria inside the fortress courtyard that holds live performances. The fort has wonderful vistas of Praia da Rocha beach.
