This fortress was built in 1829, to defend Otrabanda and the entrance of St. Anna Bay.

In World War II, it became operaionel again. It was equipped with two 37mm-machineguns. The movable chain between the Rif Fort and the Waterfort was also re-used, now against German U-boats.

Nowadays the Riffort contains restaurants and shops.
