Overlooking the North Atlantic Ocean, the Castelo do Queijo or the Fort of São Francisco do Queijo on the Civil Parish coast has the origin from the sixth century. In proximity of the Matosinhos River and Douro River, this dominating fort is trapezoidal on the clifftop and is fortified with the dry moat surrounding it. The pentagonal facades feature triangular corbels on which the watchtowers are set up. The watchtowers on the corners are shaped as round molded domes and are supported by cornices. A wooden drawbridge will give you access to the main gate of the Castelo do Queijo where you will see the Portuguese Coat of Arms with the granite sphere and the royal crown.
