Photographer's Note

Door of La Concepcion in Alcántara,a city located in the province of Cáceres in Spain. Its location at the confluence of the rivers Tagus and Alagón, as well as its proximity to the Portuguese border, shaped so determinant the physiognomy of Alcantara that was other occupied by Visigoths that you called "Oliva", later came the Arabs and became "Al Qantarat" which derives the current name.
Alcántara is known for monumental Roman, its history, and its important medieval monuments, but the ex-libris of the city is the monumental Roman bridge.
