Located in the parish and municipality of Lajes do Pico, the Fort of Santa Catarina, or Castle of Santa Catarina, is a fortification whose purpose was to maintain the defense of the anchorage of the region, against possible attacks common at the time.

At present, it is the only exemplary military architecture on the entire island. It has easy access, with a beautiful view of the sea and the mountain, as well as a shop where you can find regional products.
