São João do Arade`s Fortress


In Ferragudo, located in a strategic location on the bank of the River Arade, is the fort of São João, whose origin dates back to the 17th century.

Rebuilt after the 1755 earthquake, this military construction continued to be used until the end of the 19th century, when it was sold at public auction, being acquired by the poet Coelho Carvalho who turned it into a private residence.
