Duke Bragança Lighthouse

It is located at the highest point of Berlenga Grande

Installed between 1897 and 1985, one of the two hyper-radiant Fresnel lenses that fitted Portuguese lighthouses, is now on display at the Museum Pole of the Lighthouse Directorate in Paço de Arcos

Electrification in 1926. Since 1985 it has been automatic and since 2001 it works with solar energy. The lighthouse still maintains the presence of lighthouse keepers

Little castle

Fishermen's Quarter

The site consists of the platform where the "Bairro dos Pescadores" is located today and an area of steep slope, which separates it from the pier.

Several vestiges of Roman times (Republic, High Empire and Low Empire) were identified: common, amphoric (which produces a sound similar to the sea) and construction ceramics and terra sigillata, in secondary deposition. From this period and even from the Punic occupation, several references were already known from underwater finds.

Fort S.João Baptista

16th century - Berlenga Grande island, off the coast of Peniche, occupied by a community of Jerónimos friars who built the Berlenga Monastery of Misericórdia to help the castaways. However, the privateering attacks drove the friars away from the archipelago.

1640 - Mid 17th century - D. João IV orders the construction of a fortress on the island, with the aim of reinforcing the defense of the citadel of Peniche. The São João Baptista Fort was then built on an islet next to the island's cove and connected to it by a masonry bridge. The fortress project is attributed to engineer Mateus do Couto.

Great. Professionalism, dedication and friendliness. Peaceful trip with bonus: seeing dolphins. I recommend.

Attentive and exemplary team throughout the process. In addition to the trip to Berlenga Island, the tour also included a walking tour and a visit to the island's caves, both very well guided. I strongly recommend.
