Europe’s most south-westerly point, Cabo de São Vicente (or Cape St Vincent as it is better known in English) has been regarded as a sacred spot for millennia: the place where the world ended and the sun sank into the ocean.

In later years, the cape became an important landmark for ships heading for the Mediterranean, and the site of numerous naval battles.

Forte do Beliche was built during the 16th century to control shipping along the coast and to protect Portuguese fishermen from attack by pirates. At the entrance to the fort can be seen the royal coat of arms of King Philip IV of Spain (Philip or Felipe III in Portugal) and an inscription dated 1632, indicating the completion of major reconstruction work in this year. The earthquake of 1755 caused severe damage to the fort’s structure. Roof Terrace, Enjoying The Sun, Reconstruction, Earthquake, 16th Century, Coat Of Arms, Philip
