Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

O Forte ou Fortaleza de São João Batista, situa-se na ilha da Berlenga, a ilha principal do pequeno arquipélago das Berlengas, situado a 14km da costa para ocidente de Peniche. Foi mandado construir em 1651 pelo rei D. João IV, dada a sua posição estratégica. Existiu na ilha um mosteiro da Ordem de São Jerónimo, que oferecia guarida aos muitos marinheiros que por ali passavam. Esse mosteiro terá sido sucessivamente atacado por corsários, o que levou ao seu abandono.

A magnificent capture Joao ! How did you do it ? This bird was not superimposed onto the picture, was it? Sorry for being so skeptical. Perhaps you're an Eagle-falconer and you trained this eagle?
