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.
