The Fortress stands at one end of Funchal harbour, on the rock formation known as São José islet. Stairs from the pier along the Pontinha road, access this viewpoint.
A private individual who has been revitalising the site, claiming it to be the site of the first Madeiran fortification at the time of its discovery, recently gained the building.
