São Julião da Barra

São Julião da Barra Fort (second half of the 16th century), seen from the east. In addition to serving military purposes it was used for centuries as a political prison. The taller palm trees do not look good - they show signs of having been attacked by a beetle called red palm weevil (Rhynchophorus ferrugineus).
