Hi dear TE friends

Region: Beira Baixa / Mountain of Gardunha (zone center of Portugal)

Theme: Doors and Windows II

to see: map view
Link: Castelo Novo (New Castle), English
Portuguese

At this moment, workmanships occur in order to improve the conditions of life of its inhabitants and visitors. The photo shows the visual improvement made in the habitations.
Set in the superb amphitheatre formed by the Serra da Gardunha, Castelo Novo has some surprisingly beautiful manor houses that once belonged to the region's noble families.
Built in the 12th century but badly damaged by the earthquake in 1755, the castle was described as "new" (novo) because another one already existed in the immediate vicinity, having been abandoned because it was inadequate for the region's defence. This is how the village came to acquire the name of Castelo Novo,( New Castle).

I hope you like it, a big hug to all of you TE friends
