Photographer's Note

er a long time, I returned to the Castle of Valongo or Royal Castle of Montoito, situated in Valongo, in the Alentejo.
Considered a national monument, it's now in ruins and it's private property - it cannot ve visited inside. It dates probably from the Moorish period (some Moorish inscriptions can be found inside).
In the 15th/16th centuries it was restored and the highest tower was added, in Manueline style. It's a good example of Medieval architecture - it has been used for military purposes, but also as a royal palace.

This time I took the photos in autumn, at sunset!
