Photographer's Note

For me Campo Maior is more than flower decorations- I like that town, including its castle. It dates from the Medieval period but it has been partially rebuilt in the Renaissance period. It was here that, in the beginning of the 18th century, on a stormy night, a lightning hit a warehouse that kept the gunpowder and munitions, causing a huge explosion that destroyed part of the town and killed hundreds of people.
