Ponta de Sagres : Michelin's recommendations
Sagres Point is partly taken up by the fortress which was built in the 16C. Badly damaged by the earthquake of 1755, it was repaired by the “New State” in 1940 and recently restored. Having gone through the gate, visitors enter a large courtyard on whose floor is an immense compass dial 43m in diameter. The old school of navigation and the settlement of Vila do Infante were destroyed by the corsairs of Francis Drake in 1587. Magnificent views of the bay, Cape St Vincent and the Lagos coast.
