The small Portuguese garrison managed to hold out and stop any Dutch direct attacks on the city until additional reinforcements could arrive led by Martim Afonso de Castro, which made the Dutch retreat from the siege. After they retreated, they were again defeated by the Portuguese at the Battle of Cape Rachado.
