São Lourenço

S. Lourenço and the megalithic plateau of Vila Chã

The S.Lourenço Hill Fort was built by Iron Age peoples on top of one of the elevations of the fossil cliff - a rocky chain that lies parallel to the line of the Atlantic coast.

The mount where the Hill Fort is set underwent Christianization - quite common in monuments of this nature - through the construction of a chapel in the ancient acropolis - the chapel of S. Lourenço.
