Photographer's Note

A little bit south of Sines you find this impressive coastline with the black volcanic rocks and the rough sea. Here we spot this eiland with a fortress on it and at the beach (left side) another fortress.
After looking for information we learnd that this is the Peachtree eiland. the 2 fortresses were build against the pirates. De one on the eiland is calld "Forte de Santo Alberto", en the other on the beach "Forte de Nossa Senhora da Queimada"
The building was started at 1588 and only finished at 1690. The fortress are listed as national monuments but they are completly abandoned. What a pitty.
