November 2001 - Lagos Portugal
The Beliche fortress in Lagos Portugal.
The Fortress of Santo António do Beliche was originally built in the 16th Century and was rebuilt in 1632. At the entrance, one can see the coat of arms of the young King Sebastian. Inside the fortress, one can find the chapel of Saint Catherine, with its cubic shape, inspired by Arab Marabouts, which were cells for ascetics. A staircase descends down to sea level to one of the best spots for fishing in the region.
