the fig tree at home.
Inside. The view is outstanding. These castles used to communicate “intelligence” -menaces and sorts- from the border with Spain to Lisbon by light signs (fires at night). The castle suffered big damage in the 1755 earthquake and was never fully reconstructed since then.
On the other side of the castle, the old gate facing West. Lisbon straight ahead in more or less 100 km and in the other side of the Atlantic Ocean:Washington!… 8342Km and 570 years apart.
