FORTRESS

There are more than twenty old military fortresses along Lisbon coastline. You can find this one, named São João das Maias, right on the sea promenade at Santo Amaro de Oeiras beach. It was built in 1644 by the Portuguese King D. João IV and was recently restored and painted in some kind of martial... pink. Eh eh.
