São Francisco do Penedo Fort


Forte de São Pedro Francisco do Penedo is located in Luanda and was used to guard the sea and protect the Port of Luanda.

Built on a rock, it is known that the fort was rebuilt in 1766, when it began to be used as a warehouse for slaves.

Later, in the 20th century, the fort functioned as a political prison for the Estado Novo in Portugal.
