Forte da Barra de Aveiro

Place of Interest Check location

This fort is situated in Ílhavo, in Aveiro. A lighthouse and a small surrounding fort were built near the river Vouga in the 16th century, in order to facilitate the navigation in that area.

In the 20th century it became the property of the Administração do Porto de Aveiro, since its defence functions were no longer necessary. However it continues to function as a flag in internal navigation. Since 1974 it is classified as Property of Public Interest.
