What a mighty fortress this must have been Jose and to think that after all these years, it is still standing. Magnificent shots.

Absolutely amazing. How did you get those two middle pictures - from a helicopter?

Can't imagine living in a walled town awaiting at any moment an enemy attack!

This is fantastic! We've all seen walled cities, but I don't think I've ever seen one like this that looks like the towers are sitting in a sand dune.

Tinsie said...

WOW! That fortress looks amazing, standing on a rock like that. It must be pretty huge too!

These are wonderful! I love this blog. :-)

I wanted also to tell you how much I enjoyed the Alexander Calder post on your other blog (blogger makes it impossible for me to leave a comment). What an incredible exhibition space that is. The light is gorgeous.

Have a lovely weekend,

You're certainly a well-traveled man, JM. That undulating wall is remarkable and I don't know why Americans don't invest more in the aesthetics of living. Thanks for sharing that.

I watched 25 Ponte de Abril.
It is a bridge beautiful very great.

Thank you for teaching it.
