Don’t get lost: A quick tip concerning castles in Portugal

After a little informal poll on my Instagram stories I'm doing some adjustments to my posts both here, on Wordpress, and on Instagram.

On my last post I showed you some bits and pieces of the sanctuary of Peninha, in Sintra. Naturally, being both a religious monument and in Portugal, its origins are closely connected to a legend. What's the fun of saying a church was built somewhere odd just because? No fun at all! According to legend…

The castle of Leiria, in Portugal, has a combo of medieval and Romantic traits, which reminds of some places in Sintra. Places In Portugal, Home And Away, Brooklyn Bridge, Zen, Medieval, Photo Editing, Castle, Romantic, Fire

The castle of Leiria (between truth and imagination)

I should have written this post several months ago. I really should. Editing photos from my short stay in Leiria, however, has been particularly difficult. There is, in every photo, a strange kind of light caused by the fires that were raging in the area at the time. Far enough for us to be safe,…
