Fort of São Lourenço do Bugio

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Throughout its history (including a time as one of the world's most important cities), Portugal's capital city Lisbon has been vulnerable to seaborne invasion.  To cover the approaches to the city from the Atlantic Ocean, various fortresses have been built in the Tagus River estuary to protect the city from such an eventuality.  In this video by contributor Flyingbydaniel, you'll get a bird's eye look at one of these forts: Fort of São Lourenço. Built in the 16th-17th centuries, it now functions as a lighthouse.
