Photographer's Note

This is, in my opinion, one of the most impressive castles in Tras-os- Montes. In fact, I prefer the pov from the opposite side, but the weather wasn't that good, so here's one of the photos I got!
It's situated near Algoso and it is known that this place was inhabited since prehistory. This castle dates from the early days of our nationality - it was built during the reign of King Afonso Henriques, the first King of Portugal (12th century) and it has played an important role, it was one of the castles that defended the small County of Portugal from Castilla.
