Porta de Santiago information
A quick photo stop at Porta de Santiago is a must. Built by the Portuguese as a fortress in 1511, the British took over in 1641, and set about destroying it at the turn of the 19th century to prevent it falling into the hands of Napoleon. Fortunately Sir Stamford Raffles happened by in 1810 and saved what remains today.
