Photographer's Note

hello......The region of Silves has been inhabited since the Palaeolithic, as attested by archaeological remains, including several menhirs. The river Arade, which was navigable in historical times, linked the hinterland to the open ocean and allowed the transport of produce and commerce. The town of Silves (Cilpes) was possibly founded during the times of Roman domination, when the region was part of the Lusitania province. It was probably a Lusitanian Castro in the pre-roman times,[5] however the region was also settled by other indo-european tribes, just like the Celtici and Cynetes(or Conii). Silves was also part of the Visigothic Kingdom.
