Porta de Santiago photo copyrighted by: Kazuo Lim Khee Boon
The Porta de Santiago is one of the four main gates of the A Famosa fortress. The spades, picks and crowbars were useless against a fortress which reportedly had walls fifteen feet thick, measured 60 feet at its top and had foundations as deep. The completed fortress had four towers, or bastions, and walls that were 2.4 metres thick.
