The Fort that became a prison

With the Civil War between 1828 and 1834, the Fort of Graça became a political prison, which doubled the number of its inmates.

Many of those spaces, which were used as barracks and storerooms, became cells and the main perpetrators of the coups that occurred until 1851 were arrested and held in this fort of Elvas.

In 1875, it is created the Correction Company of the fort. In 1894, the Company transforms into a Disciplinary Deposit.

With the implementation of the Republic, the Fort of Graça became effectively a political prison, a function which kept until 1975.
