Have you ever checked the "Forte de São Filipe"?

I found it by this map ... ca-setuval

Which indicates, that the Forte only was one small part of the star fort. Unbelievable...

And further - could this Olivenca - which I couldn't find be the today's Peniche? The shape would fit...

This "Olivença" doesn't exist nowadays. But in Bombarral there is a rua Olivença. Also in Caldas da Rainha such a street name exists. Look at the map how this all fits together.

Yesterday I was in Peniche. The Forte for sure is only a small part of a former star city.
