Any useful strategies for finding a Nether Fortress?

Anyone have useful strategies for finding a Nether Fortress in Minecraft’s Nether?

I got into the nether and wandered around for quite a while, but didn’t find anything. I’m not sure if there are giveaways (I was looking for large building-like things in the distance). I’ve got a map, and have explored a small, but not unreasonable part of it. Any idea how many fortresses a single map might contain?


There are infinite nether fortresses in the nether. They spawn in rows every 200-400 blocks along the world’s North/South axis.

Once you find the first one, just keep walking north or south from it to find another.
