Some notes about S. Julião da Barra Fortress
It is known as the “Kingdom Shield“. São Julião da Barra Fort is one of the largest maritime fortifications in Portugal and impresses with its size and strength. Besides being the official residence of the Defense Minister of Portugal, it is the largest military complex in Vauban style of the country. On foggy mornings and afternoons, the line of its walls looks like the prow of a ship marching through the Tagus. This fort was built to protect the bar of this river and access to the port of Lisbon. Its construction began in the 16th century, under King João III, and its walls witnessed some of Portugal’s greatest military confrontations. It is worth to discover the history protected by the moats and bastions, at the entrance of the city.
