Photographer's Note

I wonder how many places there are where you can surf in the shaddow of a castle? And what would the builders of the castle have thought if they had seen people surfing?

This is Castelo do Queijo, just north of Porto. I was constructed during the War of Restoration, possibly by year 1661 or 1662. Queijo is a type of cheese and it is though this eminated from the granitic rock that it was built. The fort is complete with moat and draw-bridge and beautifully restored. A closer view of the castle appears in teh workshop.
