Discover Ferragudo

Discover the magnificent medieval Fort of São João de Arade, perched on a cliff-top in Ferragudo. Built into the rock right above the seashore, the light terracotta castle was once owned by the wealthy and well-known Portuguese poet Coelho de Carvalho, who purchased it in the 1900s. Though entry is unfortunately not feasible, the outside is stunning enough to make up for it!
