Beyond the historic castle walls of Aljezur

From the ancient castle walls to the historic town of Aljezur, and to the mountain of Monchique beyond.

From the ancient castle walls to the historic town of Aljezur, and to the mountain of Monchique beyond.

This photograph was taken from the walls of the 10th Century Moorish castle of Aljezur in the Western Algarve. The castle, set high on the hill, has panoramic views across the rolling countyside, the historic town of Aljezur and to Monchique mountain beyond.

This post is inspired by the WordPress Weekly Photo challenge. This week’s theme is “Beyond”.

  2. I had to limp back down that hill wearing only one flip flop when the other snapped on me just before we reached the top. Not one of my finer moments, but Aljezur won’t be easily forgotten. Nice photo, Pip.
