Stella Fort

Portoferrario
Località Forte Stella

The star form of its walls gives the fort its name, it was built in 1548 on a project by Camerini. Here is one of Europe’s oldest lighthouses, built by Grand Duke Leopoldo di Lorena in 1788. The Medici fortifications were realised by architect Giovnni Battista Bellucci.

In one year, from 1548 to 1549, he built the citadel of three forts (Falcone, Stella, Linguella) and connected one to the other by solid powerful walls. Fort Stella is part of the imposing fortification that Cosimo dei Medici wanted to defend the area from possible pirate and enemy attacks. It is built on one of the hills above Portoferaio. The Fort is in a position that overlooks all of the bay and a lot of the surrounding countryside.

To visit the fortifications (Fort Falcone, Stella and Linguella) take the Land Gate from the old port and follow the walkways that connect them.
