Forte da Cruz

Glamorously located in the heart of Estoril and with overwhelming views of the Atlantic Ocean, Forte da Cruz is a truly enchanting venue.

Ideal for all kinds of events, this charming venue can accommodate 110 guests inside and up to 500 guests on the ocean-facing terrace.

The Fort was part of the coastal line defense fortifications starting at the beach of Abano and stretching to the beach of Caxias, which were built to defend from the invasion of an enemy who wanted to invade the Capital.

Its original name was “Forte da Cruz de Santo António d'Assubida” and had the purpose of crossing fire with another fort, that no longer exists, called “Forte de Santo António.”

This strategy made it possible for the beach to be secure and protected from eventual enemy landings. It was purchased from the state in the XIX century, more specifically in 1894 by the great grandfather of the current owners, who at the time kept the tradition of following the King and his court every year during his summer holidays to Estoril and Cascais.
