Dating to 1648, the fort of Saint James is located right on the beach in the town of Sesimbra. As far as the fort itself, there isn’t much information available on its history. Most noteworthy are the beautiful beach views from the fort’s rooftop, as well as a Sesimbra sign that provides a fun photo op. There is also a rooftop restaurant that looks lovely, although we didn’t eat here.

This fort is right on the beach in downtown Sesimbra, effectively cutting the beachfront shopping areas in half. There is a nice little spot for drinks and snacks, and the views are nice.

And they even serve home brewed beer. You can sit on the terrace, enjoy the views from the towers, look inside or just relax on the beach in front. We literally put our beach towels into the castle wall. For lunch, try the tasting beer menu.

It stand right in the middle of the village, tourism information is situated inside the Castle, during the summer there are lots of activities going on inside the fortress, worth a visit. There is a restaurant and museum in there too.

Amazing views from this old fort in the heart of Sesimbra. Free entry to the main fort area with a museum on site.

Just wanted to mention that there was one girl at this office who was incredibly helpful and really passionate about Sesimbra and its environs. She showed us how to find places we wanted and then gave us extra ideas, as well as places to eat etc. A real star!

when in Sesimbra then it is recommended to take a look at this fort. You can enter for free and walk over the walls. It's not a very big fort but it does have a nice view over the sea.
