A short stop here for some photo ops. Your next stop is at the Fortalez de Sagres. 
The fortress was originally built in the 16th century and rebuilt in the 17th and 18th centuries. The old cannons on the site were used to protect the beaches of Tonel and Mareta. The 'Church of Our Lady of Favour' is perhaps the only remaining original building.
The cliffs are high and the wind can really gust so be careful if you decide to wander around the edge of the promontary. Mind you, the danger doesn't seem to phase the local fishermen who perch at strategic locations on the rocky ledges with long, long lines down to the crashing Atlantic waves below.
On your return trip to Alvor you will have an opportunity to do some shopping. Several Portuguese pottery shops are waiting for your visit.
