St. Suzana Fort - Portugal

This card, from Ribamar, was also sent by José.


The St Suzana fort was built in the 17th century by order of the Count of Cantanhede as a defence against Algerian and Tunisian pirates that attacked this coastal area. Almost nothing exists of the initial structure. On its place is the building of the Fiscal Police, a fine example of the Estado Novo architecture that was built in the 20th century. - in: http://itinerante.pt/poi/forte-sta-susana?lang=en
