Fort of Saint Joseph, Maio (Forte de Säo José)
This fort is located on the coast at the south-west tip of the capital city Vila do Maio (Porto Inglęs) and most likely dates to the 18th century, when the defence and fortifications on the island were upgraded. It was built to protect the town against pirates and other such inbvaders and it posseses a quadrangular tower which rises above the small rectangle-shaped podium with four small corner turrets.
