The São João do Arade Fortress or fort is located on top of a promontory between the beaches of Praia Angrinha and Grande, in the quiet fishing village of Ferragudo, just in front of Portimão.

This fortress worked along with the Santa Catarina de Ribamar one, in Portimão, to defend the mouth of the river.

From the early XX century, the castle became private property and is currently well preserved and restored, with a vast garden property of the Pereira Coutinho family.
