Entering the fortress leads you to... a small disappointment - after a long walk, a very large space full of history, is... empty.
There is not much to see inside, and unless you are well acquainted with Portuguese history, and understand the importance of the site, you may get frustrated. The place's value doesn't depend on what it is and contains, but on what it means and remembers.
In my last visit I noticed a new effort to give life to the place - good idea!
Sagres is an important reference to all the Portuguese, for the role it played in the discoveries.
The use of the place doesn't make justice to it, and in your visit, you will be more attracted by the landscape, and the sights of the steep promontories and wild beaches than for the references in display.
I still do not understand why we always stop to see all the things they have around in this flea markets lol, but I do, so I should not complain hehehe, must be the shopping addiction
The tourist trapping in Sao Vicente was something extreme as such. All kind of people trying to sell all kind of useless junk not relating to anything.
Unique Suggestions: Skip the junk and go directly to Sao Vicente, the views from there are stunning.
