Photographer's Note

Foto tirada numa manhã encoberta, mas calorenta do mês de Agosto. O Castelo de Chaves, localiza-se na cidade de mesmo nome. O Castelo foi reconstruído por ordem de D. Afonso III e as obras prosseguiram no reinado de D. Dinis, sendo dessa data, por exemplo, a Torre e Menagem.
Desde 1978, que no seu interior está instalado, um Museu Militar. Nos seus quatro pisos estão expostas armas uniformes, plantas militares, bandeiras e outros troféus, recolhidos desde a Idade Média até à actualidade. Vale a pena visitar a Torre de Menagem pela vista panorâmica que se pode ver de toda a cidade de Chaves, sua Veiga e arredores, quando chegados ao cimo da Torre.

Since 1978, that in its interior it is installed, a Military Museum. In its four pisos are displayed weapons military uniforms, plants, flags and other trophies, collected since the Average Age until a actualidade. Valley the penalty to visit the Tower of House arrest under bail for the panoramic sight that if can see of all the city of Keys, its Fertile valley and the outskirts, when fond of the top of a mountain of the Tower. I not sure, but I think that the picture it's a little blurry.
