Named after the nearby town of Torres Vedras, they were ordered by Arthur Wellesley, Viscount Wellington, constructed by Sir Richard Fletcher, 1st Baronet, and his Portuguese workers between November 1809 and September 1810, and used to stop French invasion 1810 offensive.

A great way to see the countryside by dipping in to the hundreds of forts and defence points built by Nelson in defence of Lisbon. First stop should be the Tourist Information centre in Torres Vedras itself and ask for the guide book; a superb buy at just €1. Then your choice of where to go and when is clearly mapped out. Anyone even vaguely interested in the Napoleonic erase should visit the region.

4WD is advised for some of the Fortes since access is a bit dodgy, even if it is summer take some extra coat since in there in the hills it can be quite windy; expect to be amazed with some of the views; imagine the solders there defending the fortes...
