Fort Machado

At the entrance to each fort, there is a panel explaining some of the historical and military context and giving information about size, mission, garrison and gun emplacements. Complementary to Fort Alqueidão, they crossed fire over the access points to the hills, forming a large, entrenched fortification whose might was sufficient to persuade the French Marshal. André Massena, to retreat from the Lines.
