Description
Built in the reign of Philip I in 1587 motivated by violent attacks by the english privateer Francis Drake in 1578 and 1585. 

In the center of the fortress there is a beautiful water cistern, covered by a dome semi - spherical and store weapons. Along the south wall is the residence of the governor, the barracks and the chapel of S. Gonçalo. 

Her fortress, there are three defensive systems: Barbican, dry moat, rampart with bastions.This construction corresponds to the kind of Renaissance fortress because of its steep walls, already abandoned medieval style.
