Photographer's Note

The lettering in the sign means: "wrong-way driving"... direc豫o probida.. yet it's so antique that the unsuded portuguese form "pro(h)bida" was used...

A street view of a fantastic and full of strory city of Portugal: BEJA,
from Wikipedia:

"Situated on a hill (277 m), commanding a strategic position over the vast plains of the Baixo Alentejo, Beja was already an important place in antiquity. Already inhabited in Celtic times, the town was later named Pax Julia by Julius Caesar in 48 BCE, when he made peace with the Lusitanians. He raised the town to be the capital of the southernmost province of Lusitania (Santarm and Braga were the other capitals of the conventi). During the reign of emperor Augustus the thriving town became "Pax Augusta". It was already then a strategic road junction."

I Hope you like it...
