Taken from the same place where I took the other photo of the church.
This is the old castle of Mogadouro. This place is inhabited since pre history, but the castle we see today is a national monument. It's an example of medieval militar architecture, it has belonged to the Templars and it was also a strategic point in the early days of our nationality.

The castle is built on a good high point overlooking the village and controlling the vast plain at the right.
A very beautiful clear and sharp presentation.
Best regards, Paul

bellissima profondità, i resti del castello sono ben posizionati nella.tua composizione, in questo modo si riesce a capire anche l'importanza strategica della posizione.

Old acstle and a bells-tower near by, remind me a similar archi.-style we saw in Belmonte, with good view on the surrounding landscape. But here the castle is much smaller in size, and it is in ruins.
Anyway, beautiful view all around, in fine contrast to white walls edifice.

Fantastica y hermosa imagen, gran contraste entre los restos de la fortaleza, la torre solitaria, restos de alguna iglesia y la nueva capilla con su rojo tejado, todo ello crea un conjunto de extraordinria belleza.
Una magnífica imagen, con un buen colorido, gran luminosidad y perfecta nitidez.
Que tengas una buena semana.
Todo lo mejor.

the heritage left by the Templars is amazing in quantity and variety. I like very much this little castle that has a discreet presence but was surely useful in its time and offered immense views. You created a wonderful composition, using a viewpoint that brings the castle close to the picturesque buildings of the town and also offers space and clear views around them. The sky adds much interest, textures and colours are superb. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good night,

gostei do uso dos elementos aqui com a torre da igreja parecendo pequena junto às ruínas do velho castelo. a paisagem ao longe parece solitária e me passa essa noção de isolamento.
