What could be more romantic than getting married in a star-shaped 17th century fort overlooking the sea?

Built to deter pirates from attacking Portugal's southern coast, this is a truly unique venue in the Algarve. Over 300 years later, its sturdy defences continue to overlook the Ria Formosa and the Atlantic beyond, but - whilst still maintaining many of its original features - this star-shaped fortress has been transformed into a luxury boutique hotel.

There's a swimming pool built into the bulwarks, the walls are topped by sun decks and a palm-shaded breakfast terrace, and the lookouts patrolling the ramparts are lucky guests relaxing in this romantic retreat.

With vaulted ceilings and stone floors, it allies historic tradition to cutting-edge design, with an impressive combination of period furnishings and modern art.

And just think of the photo opportunities!
