about Fort Conception
Fort Conception (Fort Concepcion) is a seventeenth century Spanish fort near the border with Portugal which was used as a base by the British Light Division in the Peninsular War.
In 1810, the Light Division blew up Fort Conception as enemy forces approached, but it is still incredibly well preserved.
Just as empires rise and fall so do entry fees and opening hours!
